One of the greatest challenges which still face millennium development goals is the improvement of sanitation services for the urban poor. Compared to the rural areas, space is limited and overcrowding common in the urban areas of Africa. Methods which may be supremely successful in the low density rural and medium density peri-urban areas may fail completely in the high density urban areas. The urban poor living in densely populated areas in most parts of Africa rarely have access to sewered or water born sanitation and the facts reveal that most rely on pit sanitation.
