Over the years IRC has (co-)published more than 100 books, pamphlets and papers on key water and sanitation topics. New titles are added on a regular basis. An increasing number of these are available online, free of charge. This includes the series of Thematic Overview Papers (TOPs), which combine recent experiences, expert opinions and foreseeable trends with links to the most informative publications, websites and research information.
This section contains the guidelines and conventions that IRC is using in all its communication outputs.
