The SDGs give impetus for cities to be inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable (SDG11), ensure citizens’ health and wellbeing (SDG3) and secure access to sustainable water and sanitation services (SDG6). Although urban sanitation is critical to achieving these SDG goals, cities struggle to deal with providing sanitation for all: urban population growth outpaces access gains; one billion slum dwellers live with poor/no sanitation; only 26% of urban excreta is safely managed – resulting in environmental degradation, endemic disease, low productivity and limited economic growth, in large cities and small towns alike. Business as usual won’t deliver citywide inclusive sanitation: sector professionals must transform their thinking so they can deploy customer-centric service solutions; to do so they need access to a suite of tools, including planning and design guidelines, good practice examples, standard TORs/contracts, to make the preparation and implementation of urban sanitation interventions more efficient. The event will: (i) provide an overview of the variety of existing urban sanitation planning/design tools; (ii) compare their compatibility/complementarity and identify any important gaps; (iii) discuss a better alignment of those developing/disseminating the tools; and (iv) discuss how effectively the tools are being used and what feedback mechanisms exist to measure their use.
