The challenges and opportunities given by the global community at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) and in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to improve livelihood for people and to restore the degraded environment are historically unique.
Investments in water supply, health, and sanitation will be given priority during the coming years. In order to meet requirements of sustainability, cost effective and appropriate technologies must be introduced parallel with new attitudes, especially in the field of sanitation.
This paper is a “Thinkpiece” to show that there are comprehensive experiences and available technologies that meet new and sustainable sanitation requirements. Ecological sanitation constitutes a diversity of options for both rich and poor countries, from household level up to wastewater systems for mega-cities. The objective of this paper is to show that ecological sanitation can play an important role in this context and that it needs to become recognised by decision makers at all levels.
