Making Viable Septage Management Programs

The provision of sanitation services is one of the developmental challenges besetting emerging economies such as the Philippines and Malaysia. Based on the global trend in sanitation coverage, in 2011, the global coverage is estimated to be about 64%, which is off-track to the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) sanitation target of 75%. If such trend continues to persist, missing the target would translate to more than a half a billion people without access to sanitation.
