Why sustainable sanitation?

Despite intense activities and great achievements in terms of reaching the Millenium Development Goal (MDG) on safe drinking water and basic sanitation, there are still 2.5 billion people in the world that lack access to improved sanitation. Around 1 billion people are still practicing open defecation. The number of deaths that can be contributed to sanitation-related diseases is still on average around 2 million per year of which children under 5 years are the most affected group. SuSanA provides a networking, sharing and knowledge management platform to the actors in sanitation who are working hard to solve the sanitation crisis.
