Urban sanitation is a key challenge in the pathway towards the Sustainable Development Goal’s ambition of Universal Access by 2030, due to both the rapid informal urbanisation processes and the lack of clarity on how to deliver sustainable sanitation services city-wide, with inclusion of the poor.
Across the WASH sector, there is increased engagement in urban sanitation, with new actors entering the arena. Stakeholders are keen to increase dialogue and coordination to ensure that lessons are shared and learnt widely, addressing some gaps that are currently affecting outcomes and harmonisation at the implementation level.
An initial presentation will set the scene of the urban sanitation sector, based on recent research from WaterAid. A marketplace will follow, where the space will be divided in several areas, where different organisations will present city sanitation experiences:
World Bank WGP - Vitoria, Brazil
Emory University - Maputo, Mozambique
Kampala Capital City Authority - Kampala, Uganda
WSUP - Kumasi, Ghana
Borda - Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
SNV - Khulna, Bangladesh
UTS-ISF - Sawahlunto, Indonesia
WaterAid – Visakhapatnam, India
B&M Gates Foundation – Dakar, Senegal
There will be 4 rounds of 12 minutes, so participants will learn about several experiences.
