A Framework for Sanitation Governance in South African Municipalities
Expanded Title:This study was initiated to respond to the recommendations from a WRC study which concluded that poor sanitation governance was responsible for the slow progress in the eradication of basic sanitation backlog from all settlements, especially in dense urban informal settlements and rural communities. The main goal of this study was to develop a framework for effective sanitation governance that would provide the South African Local Government with tools for the implementation of good sanitation governance in order to ensure accountability to citizens through the building of appropriate stakeholder forums, facilitation of partnerships for sustainable sanitation service delivery that involve municipal councils, service providers, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs). The review of international experience of sanitation governance showed that most Sub-Saharan countries were faced with a huge challenge of weak sanitation governance which contributed to the slow progress in the achievement of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) for access to sanitation. South Africa was in a better position than most of its African counterparts because it has a policy and legislative framework that makes provision for implementation of good governance as a part of developmental local government agenda. The weak governance that characterized the majority of municipalities could be attributed to poor provincial government oversight and ineffective national regulation of the sanitation sector.
