The Driving Theme for 2009

The main topic of WTSE 2009 was Creating the Blueprint for a Sustainable Sanitation Marketplace. The three-day Summit uncovered urban and rural perspectives on:

Creating demand at the bottom-of-the-pyramid (BOP) market;
Designing, engineering and manufacturing of sanitation solutions;
Training and capacity development to ensure sustainability;
Scaling up of sustainable sanitation solutions through social financing mechanisms.

Conclusions

At least 500 million new household sanitation systems, as well as sanitation facilities in schools, religious buildings, marketplaces, transport centres and places of recreation are needed. Considering multiplier effects for promotion, design, manufacture, distribution and transport, and the economic return on investment in sanitation, the global sanitation market is worth more than USD 1 trillion. Thats why investment in sanitation should not be considered as charity sanitation is able to generate real profits.
