Urban sanitation markets: scale and resilience
London, United Kingdom

An event jointly organised by members of the UK Water Network (UKWN) and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), focussing on working with markets for sustainable and resilient sanitation service delivery.

Progress towards the achievement of the SDG targets relevant to urban sanitation will require greater focus on installing and sustainably operating systems that complete the sanitation chain. This necessitates support to market development of sanitation services at different points within the chain and a strengthening of public-private partnerships. Given the increasing prominence of humanitarian disasters affecting populations in urban areas, there is also a need to ensure that these markets are resilient to shocks from different types of crisis.

The event will focus on the role of the market within the context of urban sanitation and how to support market actors to achieve sustainable service delivery at scale. We will consider both public and private actors, formal and informal, and what types of partnership, institutional models and financing mechanisms are most effective to support pro-poor delivery of urban sanitation services. We will discuss the experience of tools for market mapping and analysis and how these can be utilised as the basis for market strengthening, and will identify effective ways to support governmental authorities to work with private sector actors in market development. We will also consider how to prepare for emergencies and how to support critical market actors to make contingency plans for humanitarian responses to disasters.
