b.technologically feasible, and

3.To promote the systematic involvement of stakeholders, such as fisheries, tourism, public health, environmental NGOs and communities, in all stages of the planning process leading to municipal wastewater infrastructure investments; and to improve the knowledge base and strengthen information exchange between practitioners (North-South knowledge transfer and South-South knowledge sharing) and cooperation between project managers and finance planners.
