This report has been prepared by the staff of the World Bank. The judgments expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of the Board of Executive Directors or the governments they represent.

The drawing on the cover was prepared to generate discussion around local water problems. Such drawings are used to focus members of a community on what their water problems are and to mobilize them to work together toward solutions. The cover design is by May Eidi.
