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.
The Centre for Science and Environment is launching an online course on the preparation of Shit Flow Diagrams (SFDs). You can find out more on their website and apply by June 10th.
