Abstract

The book presented herein unfolds the vicissitudes of urban settlements with reference to Karachi city. This book provides a different perspective and describes the formulation and execution of the Orangi Pilot Project’s Sanitation Model. It is neatly designed and well produces by the author. No heuristic study so far appears to have been conducted in this area. The Orangi Pilot Project (OPP) is famous internationally and locally for its low cost sanitation programme which initiated in the lanes and vicinity of Orangi Town, the largest informal settlement in Karachi housing more than a million people, nearly three decades ago. The book is an edited and a bridged version of a study conducted by the author submitted to Water Aid, UK, one of the United Kingdom’s leading charity organization.
