One-page brief which discusses the question: 'Should Asia's urban poor pay for water?' and what the cost is to connect urban poor to piped water sources and sanitation services. Some points which are touched include who pays the bills, how much is being paid, who contributes to utility companies, examples of Manila, Cambodia, Maldives, Nepal, and why 'the poor are trapped in this expensive water hole'.
