Today, 4.5 billion people live without safely managed sanitation and 892 million people still practice open defecation.
The impact of exposure to human faeces on this scale has a devastating impact upon public health, living conditions, nutrition, education and economic productivity across the world. SDG 6 aims to ensure that everyone has a safe toilet and that no-one practises open defecation by 2030.
Come and hear presentations on the state-of-play from an international organization, from universities, consultants and NGOs on their activities related to sanitation in a developing countries. In the final panel discussion we will together bring attention to pro’s and con’s for current activities, aiming in accelerating improvements.
