Through capacitating local structures for sustainable decentralized sanitation services, the resilience of vulnerable communities in selected underserved areas in Iraq, Jordan and Tajikistan are strengthened to climate change impacts. Awareness of sanitation challenges in West and Central Asia is raised, and the energy-efficient and nature-based sanitation solutions developed will contribute to liveable and sustainable communities as well as the protection of natural resources.
