dc.description.abstractLifting close to 1 billion people out of poverty is a major challenge for Asian countries. Many of the 240 to 260 million poor living in cities and towns suffer from inadequate service and other forms of deprivation. As the search for sustainable alternatives continues, many Asian countries have begun to experiment with private sector initaitves and public-private partnerships to reach out to the poor. Beyond Boundaries: Extending Services to the Urban Pooris a collection of cases from 19 Asian countries where the private sector either independently or in partnership with the public sector, NGOs, and community-bsed groups has stepped in to provide services such as water supply, sanitation, and solid waste management. It comes with a CD containing the book and full version of the cases undertaken in the study
