The aim of this module is to provide you with a critical understanding of, and skills relating to, the complex mix of institutional, environmental, social, economic and human factors that have to be considered when facilitating the improvement of sanitation in rural, small town, peri-urban and informal urban settings; and enable you to understand the importance of changing people's attitudes and behaviours as well as delivering infrastructure improvements.
