Session Recording: Reimagining Urban Water and Sanitation Service Delivery
As part of the online RISE Africa 2021 event, this session aimed to reflect on the current experiences of urban informal and formal settlements and the inherent challenges and opportunities, and to share solutions to improve access to the quality of water and sanitation through appropriate innovations
Access to water and sanitation services in urban settlements is vastly unequal with formal housing providing potable water from taps and flush toilets while informal settlements may have shared or no facilities. With this status-quo having persisted over the years, how far have we come?
- Are we discussing this and moving towards a solution of bridging the gap between the two?
- Have we done enough to provide solutions?
- Are we hearing equally from the have’s and have nots’?
