Can shared sanitation be beneficial to the urban poor?
Across the world, over 600 million people only have access to a toilet that is shared between 2 or more households, over 60% of whom live in urban environments. As we work towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), some notable academics are calling for some forms of shared sanitation to be included in figures for "adequate and equitable" access to sanitation.
My research is to establish, as we navigate the challenges of rapid urban growth, if there is any merit to safe sanitation. Could it be designed, maintained and managed well? Do the views of experts in the field and current policies reflect the JMP's monitoring criteria for the SDGs?
There are 16 questions and they shouldn’t take more than 10-15 mins, depending on your responses. All responses are anonymous, any personal information collected will be anonymised when presenting the findings, and if you are interested in reading the final dissertation, there will be an option to leave your email address and I will send you a copy.
This research will form part of the MSc in Global Urban Development and Planning which I am undertaking at the University of Manchester. If you have any queries, please contact me at
