Establish WASH coordination structures led by government at the national, provincial and local level with the responsibility for coordinating sanitation and hygiene, involving all stakeholders including, but not limited to, those responsible for finance, health, public health, environment, water, education, gender and local government, etc.
Recognize the importance of sustainable environmental sanitation and hygiene in urban areas and promote thinking of sanitation as the full cycle of proper arrangements, safe conveyance and sanitary disposal / re-use of liquid and solid wastes (including solutions that do not adversely impact the quality of land and water resources);
Recognize the importance of people’s own contribution to sanitation and to ensure that policies and programmes empower communities to invest in and control their own sanitation solutions while protecting the poorest. Innovative mechanism e.g. microfinance by self help groups, will be effectively promoted.
