Planning and Implementation of Sustainable Sanitation in Urban/Semi-urban settings –
A need for development of existing tools
25-26 August 2008
It is not easy to shift from
conventional to ecological sanitation systems.
Toilets are deeply ingrained
within a specific cultural and personal context.
The natural functions of urinating and defecating are frequently referred to with euphemisms:
“number one and number two”
“answering the call of nature”
“taking care of necessities”
“using the toilet“
“going to the bathroom”
“taking care of business”
Isitreally so difficulttotalkabouttoilets?
Once basic taboos are broken,
people tend to be fascinated by the subject.
Participatory methodologies can play a crucial role in overcoming resistances, making decisions and changing behavior.

EQUITY AND JUSTICE AS WELL AS RESULTS
Though less than expected, resources are available for simple, cheap interventions that can accelerate progress towards the MDGs. Results –based management has been the key to increasing access to education and health care, but it does little to change the political, social and economic conditions that make people poor. Unless there is a better balance between the drive to achieve measurable impact, investments in long-term poverty-eradication measures, and the creation of space where poor people can discuss and develop strategies for achieving equality and social justice, it will not be as easy to make poverty history as many people think.
Reaching the MDGs: equality and justice as well as results
