Small town sanitation learning series

WaterAid/ Behailu Shiferaw

In these learning notes we present our experiences in three urban sanitation projects in small towns and secondary cities:

  • In Sakhipur, Bangladesh, the improvements across the whole sanitation chain, and, notably, the installation of a co-composting plant, thanks to long-term work with authorities and residents. 
  • In 20 towns of Ethiopia, a capacity-building initiative aimed at town utilities, to help turn them around and start considering sanitation options.
  • In Babati, Tanzania, an action research project to co-create a sanitation and hygiene plan between authorities and residents.
