Access to sanitation may have increased significantly in Asian cities between 1990 and 2006, but roughly 2 billion people in the region still do not have basci latrines, let alone more sophisticated sanitation and sewage treatment facilities. While sanitation is a complex issue that involves many factors —including awareness, policies and financing —the lack of complete, reliable and grounded data aggravates the situation hindering planners, managers, and policy makers from formulating feasible targets, prioritizing investments and designing doable projects. This publication is the first ever data book focusing on Asia's sanitation situation. It provides comparative sanitation statistics from 27 Asian cities and an in-depth analysis of these data. It also offers decision makers some tools and methods for processing data that they can use for their won knowledge development, advocacy, and planning. This databook is a joint undertaking of the Asian Development Bank, CITYNET, UN-Habitat, and Veolia Environment.

About the Author

About the Asian Development Bank ADB’s vision is an Asia and Pacific region free of poverty. Its mission is to help its developing member countries reduce poverty and improve the quality of life of their people. Despite the region’s many successes, it remains home to approximately two-thirds of the world’s poor: 1.6 billion people who live on less than $2 a day, with 733 million struggling on less than $1.25 a day. ADB is committed to reducing poverty through inclusive economic growth, environmentally sustainable growth, and regional integration. Based in Manila, ADB is owned by 67 members, including 48 from the region. Its main instruments for helping its developing member countries are policy dialogue, loans, equity investments, guarantees, grants, and technical assistance.
