Kampala is the capital and most populated city in Uganda, with a population of 1,507,080. The total area of the city is 178 km². In line with rapid urbanization, approximately 60% of city residents live in informal low-income settlements (“slums”). To account for the large number of daily commuters into Kampala, the assessment is based on a total population of 2,25 million. In Kampala, 92.5% of residents are served by onsite sanitation technologies. For this SFD 46% of the total excreta was estimated to be unsafely managed.
