Sanitation governance refers to the rules, roles and relations that make sanitation systems work (or not) – at what cost and for whom. Rural and urban sanitation systems differ, as well as those in high- and low-income areas. The appropriate governance structure ensures that the selected technology and all parts of the system work sustainably in the given setting.
