Comparative Study of Sanitation Authorities in Africa

Hello Team. I am doing a comparative study of Sanitation Authorities in Africa. Could you help by sharing documents setting up Sanitation Authorities in African countries or related documents on the subject?

Re: Comparative Study of Sanitation Authorities in Africa

Just a small query:

In Pakistan, both water and sanitation go to one authority. For example, in Karachi, we have Karachi Water & Sewerage Board. As you can see, both functions (water and sanitation) rest with one authority.

In the rest of the Sindh province of Pakistan, we have Public Health Engineering Department (PHED). PHED has, in fact, 3 sectors: water, sanitation and drainage.

Do you have solely sanitation authorities in Africa, or, water sector is also with that authority?

Re: Comparative Study of Sanitation Authorities in Africa

Thank you, Mughal for your comment.

My preliminary findings reveal that in Africa, the two sub-sectors are often coupled, i.e. sanitation and water resources.
That said, I am open to any document or reference that gives insight into the framework/ideas for setting up such an authority/entity; whether lone or coupled.

Thank you,
