Shared and public toilets: championing delivery models that work

Access to safe, clean sanitation facilities throughout the day is important as safely managed sanitation helps protect both human health and the environment. Although there has been impressive progress in recent years, the challenge will only increase, as work towards safely managed sanitation for all. To help start addressing the issue of failed management of shared facilities, the World Bank has drawn on a range of global experiences with shared household, community and public toilets and developed a guide entitled Shared and Public Toilets: Championing Delivery Models That Work. With a series of tips, case studies, and flow charts, the guide walks readers through the different decisions that need to be made when designing and implementing the full range of shared sanitation options considering user, service provider and service authority perspectives.
