Location of library entry
The EU-funded project ROSA (Resource-Oriented Sanitation concepts for peri-urban areas in Africa) proposes resource oriented sanitation concepts as a route to sustainable sanitation and to meet the UN MDGs. Adaptable, affordable and replicable solutions for sanitation of peri-urban areas in the pilot cities shall be developed. All pilot cities, (Arba Minch, Ethiopia; Nakuru, Kenya; Arusha, Tanzania; and Kitgum, Uganda), have common problems, e.g. the lack of sanitation and waste management and that people in the peri-urban areas are poor. Another common problem for all cities is the high growth rate of the population. For sustainability of the implemented solutions integrated stakeholder based management concepts will be developed and tested including end-users, service providers and authorities. This booklet describes the activities, achievements and research outputs of Arba Minch town within the framework of ROSA project.
