Learnings from Inclusive Urban Sanitation Initiatives Workshop

  • Sanitation

  • Urban

Sustainable Development Goals require water and sanitation concepts and norms to look beyond provision of infrastructure. Increased focus is on safety, inclusion, environment, public health, and multiple technology solutions tailored to different geographies and socio-economic contexts for building climate resilient cities. The Citywide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) approach has gained momentum in recent years, especially across low and middle income countries. This session will bring together key public and private stakeholders who have implemented this approach across different geographies. They will share their experiences and lessons learnt, also discussing ways for advancing (or even the need for revisiting) the CWIS framework.

The workshop will be an opportunity to gather information from utilities, regulators, academia, civil society organisations, and other sector actors which can support advancing an Inclusive Sanitation agenda on a global scale. This will specifically set the centre stage for a more nuanced and integrated urban sanitation concept through a collective global consultative process and knowledge sharing.

This workshop is part of series of events planned under the IWA new initiative on Inclusive Urban Sanitation focusing on safety, equity and multi-technology dimensions for improved public service delivery.
