Transforming South Asia’s Sanitation Landscape

South Asia has witnessed unprecedented urbanization in the last few decades. With the urban population expected to surge by almost 250 million by 2030, there is immense pressure on sanitation systems in the region, which largely consist of onsite sanitation systems (OSS) and fragmented sewer networks.

However, in the past decade, they have made remarkable progress towards safe, sustainable and inclusive sanitation.

This newsletter, created in collaboration with the Faecal Sludge Management (FSM) Alliance, explores some of the key best practices in inclusive sanitation developed by India, Nepal and Bangladesh. With proven impact in the region, these best practices have immense potential to be scaled and replicated in similarly situated emerging economies across South Asia and beyond, towards the collective goal of inclusive sanitation for all.
