The eThekwini municipality (Durban, South Africa) is tackling the formidable challenge of providing sanitation and water to its rural and peri-urban communities through the provision of urine diversion toilets and 200 litre yard water tanks. The multi-million Rand (ZAR) roll-out enters its forth year in 2006 and provides an opportunity to look at some lessons emerging from the implementation of this programme.
The aim of this project / programme is to provide an acceptable basic level of water and sanitation to all households in the eThekwini municipality's rural and peri-urban communities by 2010 through the supply of urine diversion toilets and 200 litre yard tanks.
The WIN-SA lessons series aims to capture the innovative work of people tackling real service delivery challenges. It also aims to stimulate learning and sharing around these challenges to support creative solutions.
