This approach and methodology for planning urban sanitation and wastewater management improvements is in the form of a consultant Terms of Reference (TOR) for a Project Preparation Technical Assistance. The breadth of technical and institutional options is a standout feature of the TOR. The TOR directs the project preparation consultant to review a comprehensive range of sanitation and wastewater management options, including conventional and low cost centralized and decentralized sewerage; separate and combined industrial and municipal sewerage; sewage treatment and effluent disposal options; on-site sanitation options, separate programs for schools; public toilets; sanitation in slums; community-based NGO-supported programs. Consultants and governments are encouraged to consider where ecological sanitation should fit in the sanitation strategy. The TOR offers a step-by-step guide for surveying the existing sanitation situation in the project city; analyzing the survey results; analyzing all the plausible technical and institutional options; formulating responsive city government policy and ordinances; and setting project investment priorities. The material is work-in-progress and can be adapted for particular project circumstances. The appendices include lessons learned from ADB and the World Bank, case studies, and urban sanitation references
