The study presented here is part of a four-country initiative funded by DFID through the SHARE Consortium. The study compiles information from a situational analysis that was carried out in Blantyre City, Malawi’s commercial centre, between March and December 2012 by the Centre for Community Organisation and Development (CCODE) and the Malawi Homeless People’s Federation. The study targeted 15 of 21 informal settlements in Blantyre. These settlements were mobilised and supported with capacity building initiatives by the Federation, with the CCODE acting as backstop. The main objective of this study is to review the sanitation situation in informal settlements in Blantyre City to inform community-driven improvements and support a pro-poor citywide sanitation strategy.
