Catalysing self-sustaining sanitation chains in informal settlements: a review and analysis of the situation pertaining to the provision of sanitation to low-income settlements in Kigali City (Rwanda): diagnostic report
MetadataShow full item record
This report examines what is already known about the provision of sanitation in poor urban informal set - tlements of Kigali City (Rwanda). It analyses the social, economic, legal and policy frameworks that govern the provision of sanitation and how they facilitate or hinder access to sanitation in low-income urban communities. It is a part of 3K-SAN/SPLASH Research Project and will develop and evaluate strategies for catalysing self-sustaining sanitation chains in low-income informal settlements in Kisumu (Kenya), Kam - pala (Uganda) and Kigali (Rwanda). Catalysing self-sustaining sanitation chains broadly refers to improved sanitation without continued external intervention. This is very important because, generally, improved sanitation has not always been sustainable, and relying on foreign aid is not a good idea.
