Micro Environment in Urban Planning-Access of Poor to Water Supply and Sanitation

Access of Poor to Water Supply and Sanitation Amitabh Kundu Environmental degradation poses problems for urban populations both at the macro as well as micro levels. The macro problems, that affect the entire population in a city, are of late receiving attention from academics and policy-makers. It has generally been held that the poor are not interested in resolving macro level problems of the environment While this is certainly not true, it is a fact that micro level problems, such as access to water and sanitation are more immediate and specific problems for the urban poor This paper attempts to examine the nature and magnitude of disparity in the access to water supply and sanitation of people in different levels of consumption expenditure in urban areas.
