Kampala is the capital and most populated city in Uganda, with a population of 1.5 million. 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”). The majority of households in Kampala use on-site sanitation as the city’s sewerage network covers less than a tenth of the population.
Kampala was part of the study commissioned by Worldbank - WSP, when a first SFD for the city was prepared (based on secondary information). In 2016, a more detailed study was conducted by Sandec following the methodolgy developed by the SFD Promotion Initiative.
