MURPHY, T., 1981. The interdependence of public health engineering and a system of lifelong education. IN: Ball, S. and Pickford, J. (eds). Water, people and waste in developing countries: Proceedings of the 7th WEDC International Conference, Loughborough, UK, 23-25 September 1981, pp.39-42.
This paper will claim that water and waste engineers and adult educators must be conscious allies. It will reiterate the importance of involving the people in the planning and implementation of projects. It will suggest that the present surge of interest in appropriate technology requires appropriate staff and that this in turn will require the replacement of much of present education by education for less prestigious schemes. Finally, it will survey the role adult education can play.
