Asia has made significant progress in expanding reliable and adequate sanitation infrastructure, but challenges remain toward ensuring that sanitation services are environmentally, financially, and technically sustainable. These needs can be addressed through city and national sanitation policies and investments based on city-wide inclusive sanitation strategy that optimizes sanitation service performance and service delivery.

This one-week ADBI-Toyo University virtual program for policy makers from developing Asia and experts examined city-wide inclusive sanitation in the region, with a focus on Japanese experiences. The program consisted of 6-hours of real time sessions on the first and last days, as well as 15 hours of on-demand lectures.

  • Develop sanitation policy capacity of government officials from developing Asian countries and experts
  • Contribute to the innovative design and accelerated implementation of city-wide inclusive sanitation projects supported by development partners such as the Asian Development Bank, Japan International Cooperation Agency, and others
