Sanitation

  At current rates of progress, Africa is unlikely to meet the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) to cut in half the share of the population that lives without improved sanitation. Encouraging advances have been made in some areas, notably in expanding access to improved latrines. But more than 60 percent of Africa’s population still lacks access to modern sanitation. To meet the international sanitation goal, the region would have to allot an estimated 0.9 percent of its gross domestic product (GDP) annually to the sector—more than two-thirds for new investments and the rest for maintenance. explored different policy options for widening access to improved sanitation and determined that solutions must be closely tailored to each country’s circumstances.
