Sanitation in developing cities: an imperative for sustainable urban development

My list


In 2018, 4.5 billion people in the world (or 61% of the total population) have no access to safely managed sanitation services, including 2.5 billion people (30%) with no basic sanitary installations (toilets or latrines) and almost 1 billion practicing open defecation. This year, 2018, is also the year in which Sustainable Development Goal 6 on water and sanitation will be reviewed by the High-Level Political Forum to be held at the United Nations in July, 10 years after the United Nations International Year of Sanitation. Where are we in terms of progress and efforts in this sector? What role and importance does sanitation actually have in sustainable urban development?
