Access to water and sanitation services in urban settlements is vastly unequal with formal housing providing potable water from taps and flush toilets while informal settlements may have shared or no facilities. With this status quo having persisted over the years how far have we come:
- are we discussing this and moving towards a solution of bridging the gap between the two?
- have we done enough to provide solutions?
- are we hearing equally from the have's and have nots'?
The session aims to reflect on the current experiences of urban informal and formal settlements and the inherent challenges and opportunities and share solutions to improve access to quality of water and sanitation through appropriate innovations.
