Abstract: Paper discusses baseline results from one of Lusaka’s peri urban communities known as Madimba and highlights practical experiences. The project implemented through Integrated Environmental Sanitation (IES) with the intentions to develop an Eco-model (PUHEIM) for the integration of peri urban communities. It also discusses strategies that empower vulnerable poor communities with cost sharing skills to run communal water sources and waste management. It brings out how implicit experience and tacit knowledge translated into shared experiences and explicit knowledge result into effective community structures for implementing Environmental sanitation concepts. It points out negative and positive experiences on how integrated environmental sanitation programs are implemented through community participation, considering gender perspectives, cultural background as well as the socio-economic situations of the vulnerable groups of the poor.
