Stakeholder's Involvement in Human Waste Management in the Informal Settlements in Sub-Saharan Africa: Case of Eldoret Municipality

George Kwedho, Pancras Grephas Opata, Elijah Oyoo-Okoth


Abstract: Urban centres have been evolving for many centuries across the world. Human waste is currently an emerging problem in urban areas in the developing countries mostly in the informal settlements. The unsustainable handling of human wastes has led to the problem of land, air and water pollution, which is potential risk to humans and the environment. Taking cognizance of the problem, many cities are now investing in human waste management programmes involving an integrated approach that involves majority of the stakeholders. This study examined the stakeholders involvement in human waste management in the informal settlements in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Data were collected using both primary and secondary methods. Primary data were collected from a sample size was 125 public, 12 members of the EMC, 15 members from the MoE, 11 from MoH and from 12 key informants while secondary data were collected from document previously published on human was management in Eldoret and other urban areas in SSA. Stakeholders such as public, environmentalist, planning agencies, government, NGOs, media and financial sector existed in the management of human wastes but did not work in harmony against the problem leading to proliferation of the problem. There is a need to give priority to environmental protection, educate and empower all stakeholders to monitor and manage human wastes in their environment. Also the main actors involved in human waste management in SSA should ensure that there are sufficient, appropriate and secure human waste management facilities in informal residences
