Date & Time
Worldwide, 2.7 billion people rely on onsite sanitation systems that are not connected to sewer systems. These facilities are cleaned and maintained by informal and invisible sanitation workers at a great risk to their health and dignity. This webinar will focus on how social enterprise may be an important mechanism for integrating sanitation workers in the formal economy and safeguarding their dignity and health. Case studies from East Africa and Southeast Asia will be discussed.
- Identify health effects to sanitation workers servicing onsite sanitation facilities
- Describe benefits and strategies for including sanitation work within the formal economy
- Discuss case studies where sanitation work is being formalized internationally
