Building partnership for participatory sanitation and hygiene planning: Lessons and experience from Tanzania
This meeting paper was written by Beale et al. for the 41st WEDC International Conference in Kenya in 2018. It gives an overview of the SHARE project, Cities of Tomorrow, which details townwide sanitation planning for the rapidly urbanising Tanzanian town, Babati. The Cities of Tomorrow research project is using participatory approaches to work with stakeholders in Babati to build the evidence needed to help develop and inform a townwide sanitation and hygiene plan and to feed into the development of the Babati spatial master plan. This paper describes some of the lessons learned through the development of the partnership between government, academic and non-governmental institutions working together on this project.
