For safely managed water, sanitation and solid waste services the entire service chain needs to be in place and functioning. The water, sanitation and solid waste service chains are all connected (interlinked). Weak or missing links in one chain have negative effects on other chains.
As the infographic shows, delivering safe water, sanitation and solid waste services is a complex system involving many actors, factors and the links between them. Safely managed services therefore require a holistic approach that recognises the complexity and fundamentally interlinked nature of the real world.
