Building from the Bottom: Infrastructure and Poverty Alleviation provides critical insights into infrastructure governance from different angles - policy-making, urban and rural aspects, technology, connectivity, capacity building and participation. There is now an increasingly urgent need for large-scale environmental improvement programmes and for strengthening governance and the capacity of local institutions to plan, implement, and finance infrastructure provision and service delivery. The book contains a number of such best practice case studies to reflect community participation, innovation and commitment, all vital ingredients to the process of building from the bottom.
