This report presents how criteria-based comparison of sanitation systems can be used to guide decision makers and planners to take strategic decisions based on sustainability when planning for sanitation. The report uses three examples from three different countries, from a municipal perspective, to illustrate the use of the criteria being Sandviken in Sweden, Buffalo City in South Africa and Santiago Tepetlapa in Tepoztlán municipality in Mexico. Due to the fact that sustainability is a context specific matter, no sanitation system can be considered universally sustainable; therefore each needs to be assessed in a specific context.
