WaterAid – Sanitation and water for poor urban communities

Sanitation and water for poor urban communities: a manifesto, 2011. WaterAid.

Full-text (pdf)

WaterAid calls on governments and development agencies across the world to put the highest political priority on the provision of water and sanitation services to poor urban communities. These services
are fundamental to human health and development, nowhere more so than in densely populated urban areas.

With no indication that the pace of urbanisation, and subsequently the growth in poor urban areas, will slow, the international community must act collaboratively to ensure these basic human rights are afforded to poor urban communities – and it must act now. Here, WaterAid sets out the examples and objectives for successful delivery of sanitation and water to poor urban communities.
