Sanitation partnerships : landlord or tenant? : the importance of rental relationships to poor community sanitation in three African countries

The importance of rental relationships to poor community sanitation in three African countries is discussed in this paper. The challenges of forming effective sanitation partnerships are amplified in a context of insecure tenure and transient residents, and where relationships between landlords and tenants range between ‘limited’ and ‘fraught’. For public authorities, the problems posed by low-income tenancy arrangements often seem intractable; the relationship between landlord and tenant is private, but the consequences of inadequate sanitation frequently impact very publicly.

Abstract

The importance of rental relationships to poor community sanitation in three African countries is discussed in this paper. The challenges of forming effective sanitation partnerships are amplified in a context of insecure tenure and transient residents, and where relationships between landlords and tenants range between ‘limited’ and ‘fraught’. For public authorities, the problems posed by low-income tenancy arrangements often seem intractable; the relationship between landlord and tenant is private, but the consequences of inadequate sanitation frequently impact very publicly.
