The Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago has today engaged with Kampala City Authority (KCCA) development partners at the on-going Faecal Sludge Management (FSM5) and Africa Sanitation (FSN5) at an annual conference in Cape Town, South Africa.
This donor funded continental dialogue on water and sanitation in cities and municipalities brings together mayors of different cities and other leaders in Africa to share ideas, experiences, innovations and good practices regarding sanitation and water.
“They have reviewed the progress of our development agenda and programmes in the area of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), largely supported and financed by donors or development agencies such as: African Water Association (AFWA), Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, GIZ, AMCOW, ENWASS, Africa Development Bank, Speak up Africa and many others,” he said.
They also used the same occasion to launch the Strategic Urban Sanitation Plan (Susp), centered On non-sewer sanitation and faecal sludge management for the city Of Kampala, with the implementation support of African Water Association and financial support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Lukwago said he is quite optimistic that “These vital interventions will immensely help address and ameliorate the appalling water and sanitation situation in Kampala.”
