Summary

Lack of proper sanitation remains stubbornly difficult to resolve in many places in Asia. While there are many feasible solutions from an engineering viewpoint such as decentralized sewage treatment, it is often unclear to local decisionmakers which of these would be most effective and optimal for adoption.

This two-day ADBI-Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation virtual workshop was led by Tan Soo Jie Sheng of the National University of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy who presented a case study-based evaluation of sanitation challenges and measures for advancing city-wide inclusive sanitation in developing Asia. The workshop also included interactive group exercises.
