This regional workshop on urban sanitation was attended by participants from Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe. Other participants were resource staff from UNICEF, UNCHS Habitat, the World Bank, and the UNDP/World Bank Water and Sanitation Program. The workshop provided a forum for the exchange of urban sanitation experiences, problems and solutions. Country case studies were presented to highlight sector practices which have contributed to improved services. One example is the use of the rapid urban environmental assessment approach to place sanitation services in the context of environmental management. There was also a presentation on present sector trends and practices from recent global experiences, such as: demand-driven service and delivery; community management; strategic planning; and increased private sector involvement. A presentation of health and sanitation emphasized the health impact of water and sanitation improvements. Working groups indentified key urban sanitation issues facing the various countries in the region. These included finance, technology, institutional issues and partnership, government policy and legislation, communication, and participation. This publication includes a list of participants with their addresses, a bibliography, and an overview of sanitation planning tools.
