Back cover

The time has come for a sanitation revolution. Half of the people in the world today lack even basic sanitation, such as toilets and solid waste removal, and as a consequence over three million people die each year from epidemics and chronic disease related to environmental pollution. Governments and aid agencies need to wake up to the problem and act in positive ways to remedy these unhealthy environments.

Sanitation Promotion is the result of four years of work by the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council Working Group on Promotion of Sanitation. It is a collection of articles designed to give all who wish to promote sanitation the tools to do so effectively. The book helps us to understand the nature of the challenge before us, how to gain the political will and partnerships necessary for success, how to do better sanitation programmes and shares new ideas and case examples of sanitation promotion.

This book is for:

- sanitation policy makers
- sanitation strategic planners
- external support agencies
- nongovernmental organizations
- senior field staff.
