Overall goal:  

Based on the principle of subsidiarity, integrated sanitation solutions contribute to the development of more liveable, inclusive, climate-resilient, and resource-efficient African cities. Capacities of urban and national actors in Mali, Zambia, Tanzania and South Africa support the sustainable and broad-based provision of improved decentralized sanitation services in ten municipalities and thus contribute to strengthening social structures in particularly vulnerable urban areas. 

Project goals: 

1.) Sustainable access to improved decentralized sanitation services. 

2.) Program approaches for improved decentralized sanitation services anchored in the strategic development plans of 6 of the supported municipalities.  

3.) The program approach and the instruments developed can be found in 4 strategic documents on sector development (financing, standardization, etc.) in the respective national context and thus contribute to the security of supply and scalability of the project results in the long term.
