OGLM 2110 - Acces to services for all in large metropolis

Type d'enseignement : Workshop

Semester : Autumn 2018-2019

Number of hours : 12

Language of tuition : English



Course Description

We can estimate today that half of the world's population, still do not have access to water that is safe and that 2.6 billion people are without access to improved sanitation. Even worse, in the urban context, water and sanitation service are not keeping pace with urban growth: there are more and more people lacking access. It is one of the biggest challenges Large Metropolis are facing today. Yet, successful experiences and replicable methodologies do exist to implement access to services for all. They are characterized by co-operation between actors, by their adjustment to local context and by stakeholder engagement in their design and implementation. During this workshop we will use approved methodologies and tools to work on several case studies about passed or on-going experiences dealing with access to services for all in Large Metropolis.
