The National Sanitation Strategy proposes a focus on basic sanitation services, because a narrow focus on the development of conventional sewerage systems will be unaffordable. There is ample evidence that providing basic services to all rather than upgrading some sanitation services to some has a much larger public health impact. The development of individual facilities (latrines and septic tanks), semi-collective low cost technologies (small diameter community “condominial” systems) will be coupled with the development of sludge collection systems and sludge treatment stations. Given its very high costs, conventional sewerage is only considered an
option in limited areas in the center of Yaoundé and Douala, Cameroon. [authors abstract]
