To assess the future applicability and appropriateness of the WASHaLOT 3.0, a group washing facility designed to facilitate hygiene activities for many people simultaneously whilst using minimal amounts of water at low cost, the Technology Applicability Framework (TAF) has been applied.
The TAF helps to understand if any technology implemented as a pilot fulfils the criteria for further …
Daudey, L. (2018)
The main objective of this paper is to review the literature on and compare the lifecycle costs of full sanitation chain systems in developing cities of Africa and Asia. Overall, financial cost reporting methodologies have been inconsistent and many studies only focus on capital costs or do not report cost data on desludging, transport and treatment. In addition, a comparative analysis of raw …
The establishment of SDG 6, Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all, reflects the increased attention on water and sanitation issues in the global political agenda. The 2030 Agenda lists rising inequalities, natural resource depletion, environmental degradation and climate change among the greatest challenges of our time. It recognizes that social …
Hutton, G., Varughese, M. (2016)
This study provides an assessment of the global costs of meeting the WASH-related targets of SDG 6. The targets assessed include achieving universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all (target 6.1), achieving access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all, and ending open defecation (target 6.2). The estimates include 140 countries, or 85% of the …
Hutton, G. (2013)
Economic evidence on the cost and benefits of sanitation and drinking-water supply supports higher allocation of resources and selection of efficient and affordable interventions. The study aim is to estimate global and regional costs and benefits of sanitation and drinking-water supply interventions to meet the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) target in 2015, as well as to attain universal …
This report examines innovative financing mechanisms that can help attract new financial resources into water and sanitation services (WSS ). A particular focus is placed on mobilising market-based repayable financing (such as loans, bonds and equity) as a way of bridging the financial gap to meet the Millennium Development Goals and other crucial sector objectives. The Camdessus and Gurria …
Cardone, R., Fonseca C. (2006)
Secondary urban centres vary widely, both in terms of economic base and water service delivery models. Moreover, what constitutes a Secondary urban centres in one part of the world may be deemed to be something else somewhere else. For example, what might be regarded as Secondary urban centres in India and China might be considered to be small cities in Africa. This paper specifically deals with …
Fonseca, C., and Pories, L. (2017)
Globally, investments concentrate on the construction of infrastructure (capital expenditure) with insufficient attention on the systems needed to make the water and sanitation infrastructure function properly: regulations, policies, monitoring, institutions and the people that provide WASH services at regional, district and municipal levels. The lack of non-capital expenditure and support for …
The F4S approach uses the school setting to support the institutionalization of health-promoting behaviour of children. This includes washing hands with soap, brushing teeth with fluoride toothpaste, daily cleaning of sanitary facilities, etc. The measures in schools include a clear set of rules for routine group activities, simple infrastructural measures such as group washing facilities and …
World Bank (2019)
Urban population growth in many developing countries outpaces gains in improved sanitation access and services. In such circumstances, the traditional approach to urban sanitation, premised on extending sewerage networks and building wastewater treatment (WWT) plants, will not be sufficient to deliver citywide sanitation services for all. Alternative approaches are needed to deliver adequate and …
Health is a sustainability subject with diverse intersectoral linkages across several SDGs. The scope of SDG 3 – Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages – is broad and ambitious. As highlighted through these case studies, sustainability education and participatory, multi-stakeholder learning and action have significant impact in improving health, sanitation and …
Action to improve menstrual hygiene management (MHM) for schoolgirls in low- and middleincome countries continues to gather momentum around the world. The annual virtual conference on MHM in schools shared recent evidence and programmes that illustrate the continuing progress in the field. The conference provides a vital global platform for practitioners and policy makers to share ideas, discuss …

Slaymaker, T., Johnston, R., Chatterley, C. (2018)
The presentation provides data to the following questions:
- Where is MHM in schools in the SGDs?
- Are national baselines available?
- What indicators are being monitored and through what sources?
- What actions are needed to improve monitoring?
Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Eschborn, Germany (2018)
There is a growing pool of evidence with regard to the effectiveness of school-based MHM interventions under WASH in Schools (WinS). This is because schools provide the ideal environment to reach all girls and boys and address taboos and misconceptions in a culturally sensitive manner.
Ministries of Education (MoE) have the power and the responsibility to transform schools into places with …
Mills, F., Kohlitz, J., Carrad, N., Willetts, J. (2019)
This paper presents a comprehensive conceptualisation of how climate change could be considered in urban sanitation policy and programming.
Given the urban sanitation crisis facing many cities in developing countries, consideration of climate change can seem like an unwanted distraction from the immediate problems at hand (Bartram, et al., 2017). Climate hazards are often perceived as …
Oates, N., Ross, I., Calow, R., Carter, R., Doczi, J. (2014)
Water will be the main channel through which the impacts of climate change will be felt by people, ecosystems and economies. However, predicting impacts on the availability and quality of freshwater resources, and on water-dependent services and sanitation, remains difficult.
While there is a high level of confidence in the processes linking emissions to global warming, much less is known …
Howard, G., Calow, R., Macdonald, A., Bartram, J. (2016)
Climate change represents the most significant challenge of the twenty-first century and poses risks to water and sanitation services. Concerns for water supply include damage to infrastructure from flooding, loss of water sources due to declining rainfall and increasing demand, and changes in the water quality of water sources and within distribution of water. Sanitation concerns include damage …
