UNICEF Programme Division is pleased to present this handbook, Towards Better Programming: A Sanitation Handbook, in support of the country programme process. There is an urgent need for development planners throughout the world to give sanitation priority attention. The number of families without access to adequate wast disposal in poor urban and rural areas continues to grow in many places, and the programming challenges for UNICEF and other partners are considerable. This handbook is the first in a series being prepared by the Programme Division to support national and local initiatives to fulfill children’s rights to a safe environment. This handbook has been prepared to help working groups of professionals responsible for sanitation programming prepare realistic and better sanitation programmes. As work is performed through the programme cycle, this handbook should be used as a guide and reference on major topics of sanitation programming. Assessment, analysis, and action – the “Triple A” methodology – are incorporated into this systematic planning approach. The handbook will help exploration of the major questions, considerations, and options for each of a series of major topical aspects of sanitation programming. (Link)
