Situational Analysis of Urban Sanitation and Waste Management


JSI’s Strengthening Ethiopia’s Urban Health Program (SEUHP) engaged the Addis Continental Institute of Public Health to conduct a study, Situational Analysis of Urban Sanitation and Waste Management: The Structural, Socio-Economic, Cultural and Political/Institutional Dimensions.

The purpose of this analysis was to review and analyze national, regional, and city/town level policies and strategies on sanitation and waste management; assess availability and enforcement of regulations, institutional capacities, and existing/potential financing mechanisms for waste management; and describe the current sanitation and waste management-related knowledge, perspectives, and practices among urban communities.

The findings of the study enhance SEUHP and its partners' understanding on urban sanitation and waste management challenges and on the social and structural determinants of poor sanitation and waste management and will inform the interventions that stakeholders will design to improve sanitation policy nationwide.
