Cities and communities are key actors for a sustainable development. The adoption of the new urban agenda on the Habitat III Conference in Quito in 2016 adopted new targets and orientations for a sustainable urban development. The 2030 agenda highlights the importance of safely managed sanitation as a key element to ensure public health. This session will explore how sanitation contributes to city-wide sustainable planning. Cities are using a variety of solutions and programs to provide sanitation service for all. This session will explore some of these proven solutions in the Americas, discussing the development of sector frameworks in Colombia, condominal sewerage and decentralized wastewater solutions in Brazil and Bolivia, and the use of microfinance to connect low income families to existing grids in peri-urban areas of Lima.
