Content - Summary

Esta ficha técnica trata la planeación del saneamiento sostenible para áreas urbanas y periurbanas del mundo desarrollado y su importancia para la cobertura sanitaria acelerada hacia el 2015. El Año Internacional del Saneamiento para las Naciones Unidas ha destacado el enorme incremento en número y el uso de instalaciones de saneamiento de acuerdo a la meta ODM sobre saneamiento básico. Conforme a estimados recientes, cerca de 400,000 personas deberán ser provistas de saneamiento adecuado durante el periodo de 2001 a 2015 para lograr la meta 10 del objetivo 7, 'reducir a la mitad para el 2015, la proporción de personas sin acceso sostenible a agua potable y saneamiento básico' (Septiembre 2001, ONU). Urgentemente necesitamos nuevas ideas de planeación e implementación óptimas para llegar a este objetivo. La desalentadora tarea de mejorar el acceso global al saneamiento se complica por el crecimiento de enfoques convencionales – inodoros de descarga hidráulica conectados a plantas centralizadas para el tratamiento de aguas residuales que conducen sus descargas a acueductos locales – son económica y ambientalmente insostenibles.
