New Security Beat: New Approach to Sanitation May Help Fast-Growing Urban Areas Achieve SDGs
“Along this journey we realised there were other like-minded individuals and organisations who had come to the same conclusion that container based sanitation (CBS), is the most appropriate solution to address the sanitation gap in densely settled urban areas where sewers are lacking and there is either insufficient space or the water table is too high to dig an improved pit latrine.
…The summit acknowledged that we are stronger working together and agreed to form an alliance. In addition to the obvious benefits of working together to pool resources, share learning and avoid duplication; by developing standards on what constitutes CBS and demonstrating that a service model collecting and transferring waste from households to a point of treatment is not only viable but also safer than alternative options, we aim to educate policy makers and establish CBS as a recognised option for addressing a growing global sanitation crisis.”
