The IRC Symposium 2008 will explore the challenges around urban sanitation for the poor and will present good practice examples, with an emphasis on partnerships and governance.
Focus and objectives
The focus of the symposium will be on innovative governance and partnership solutions to address the challenges of sanitation delivery in informal settlements.
The objectives of the IRC symposium 2008 are two-fold:
- It will provide a platform to share good practices in the field of improved urban sanitation for the poor through partnerships and/or improved governance. The symposium will focus on approaches that have been tried at scale or show strong potential for scaling up. The symposium will seek to identify factors that contribute to scaling up.
- The symposium will formally close the International Year of Sanitation 2008 for the Dutch water and sanitation sector and will synthesise experiences from the year, looking ahead towards further action to bring about change.
