intersectionality, interactionality and hybridity will be discussed in outlining the
challenges of implementing the nexus approach to management of environmental
water, soil and waste. Chapters 4 , 5 and 6 will elaborate upon issues
relating to
financing of infrastructure projects. Questions of accountability and
autonomy will be discussed in the context of discourses of decentralization and
deregulation. Concepts relating to central transfers, taxes and tariffs and potential
applications of results-based
financing approaches in supporting sustainable service
delivery will be examined. Chapters 7 , 8 and 9 will discuss strategies for imple-
mentation by focusing on European experience with application of life-cycle cost
analysis in water and wastewater projects, use of an agroecology framework to
support wastewater reuse in agriculture and applications of data visualization
techniques for evidence-based decision-making.
