Project Overview:

The overall objective of this project is to develop a comprehensive sanitation improvement and investment strategy and developed an updated/ newly adopted Lusaka Sanitation Master Plan covering the entire Lusaka Province. The Strategy and Sanitation Master Plan will be developed through a participatory approach and in line with the Citywide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) Approach. In line with this approach, sanitation is to be approached as a service to be delivered, with a mix of technical solutions considering the full sanitation service chain – i.e., household containment, collection, conveyance, treatment, and safe disposal – for all residents of a given settlement or city. The approach further ensures focus on: (i) targeting specific unserved and underserved groups, such as women, the aged the urban poor, and people with disabilities; (ii) sustainability by basing investment decisions on capital and operational budgets (i.e., always planning for operation and maintenance); and (iii) facilitating incremental progressive realization, building on what is already in place.

The results that are expected from the project are:

  • A situational analysis of sanitation service provision in all the Districts in Lusaka Province;
  • A review of the existing master plan;
  • Identification of strategic approaches for improving sanitation (on-site and sewered) services in all the districts;
  • Development of a sanitation improvement and financing strategy;
  • Selection of projects to be undertaken in the short, medium, and long term;
  • Pre-feasibility studies for the selected projects to be undertaken in the short term; Gender and Social Inclusion Mainstreaming (SIGM) coupled with a Community Stakeholder Engagement Plan/Strategy for the Sanitation Master Plan; An M&E strategy that will be used to monitor and track the progress of the strategic sanitation master plan; and
