Sanitation 21

by International Water Association (IWA)


Sanitation 21 presents a planning framework for improving city-wide inclusive sanitation services based on international best practices. Initially developed in 2006, this updated version builds on recent experiences where good planning has formed an integral part of achieving improvements in urban sanitation. The document sets out key principles and process guidelines to help city stakeholders develop appropriate and affordable solutions to sanitation problems, taking into account technology issues, management arrangements, institutional challenges and demands for improvement from different stakeholders.

Sanitation Safety Planning (SSP)

by World Health Organization


SP is a step-by-step, risk-based approach to assist in the implementation of local risk assessment and management for the sanitation service chain—from containment through conveyance, treatment and end-use, to disposal. SSP supports the implementation of the WHO Guidelines on Sanitation and Health and the WHO Guidelines for Safe Use of Wastewater, Excreta and Greywater.

Towards Systemic Change in Urban Sanitation

by IRC


This working paper outlines a 'whole-system approach' to urban sanitation by shifting the focus from building infrastructure or a project-driven implementation approach to providing and maintaining equitable and environmentally friendly services, championed and supported by the government and with sufficient resources allocated to ensure sustainability. The paper uses a step by-step approach to unravel and tackle the very complex circumstances surrounding the need for sanitation in urban areas, particularly in densely populated areas and to the less affluent sectors of society.

The Utility Management Simulation Game (UMSG) has been designed as a learning tool to develop awareness and knowledge of the processes of strategic planning within utilities.

Wastewater Management Expert (WaMEX) Tool

by ADB


The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the UNESCO-IHE teamed up to develop the wastewater management expert system that will provide decision-makers and planners with a tool to carry out “what-if” scenarios to effectively evaluate technologies and sewer networks.
