INTERNATIONAL HOUSING COALITION's Fundraiser:

Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor

INTERNATIONAL HOUSING COALITION's Photo

THE STORY:

Today 863 million people live in slums that lack decent housing and access to clean water and basic sanitation. Almost half of city dwellers in Africa, Asia and Latin America have suffered from at least one disease caused by lack of safe water and sanitation.

Within the next 30 years, developing countries are predicted to account for 80% of the world’s urban population. Statistics such as these make it easy to get discouraged by the challenges facing the urban poor.

The impoverishment of cities and the proliferation of slums are neither necessary nor inevitable. Concentrated effort to plan and implement urban-specific water and sanitation programs, and to learn from the efforts and mistakes of others.

The IHC continues to contribute to the growing advocacy community around water and sanitation. A critical challenge is lack of information; we as a community often don’t communicate our successes or failures to others, so mistakes are repeated and solutions can’t scale up quickly enough. With funding scarce and competition high, it has never been more important that we spend resources more efficiently, and one way to do that is to learn from each other.

Please help the IHC and its’ over 40 like-minded members to advocate for water and sanitation for the urban poor in the developing world, share vital information among the world’s leading development practitioners, and to increase the strength and effectiveness of our work.
