Rapidly growing urban populations and informal settlements coupled with inadequate sanitation provision create a concerning picture in the majority of major cities in developing countries. The SHARE-funded City-Wide Sanitation Programme seeks to address this. One of the first steps was the analysis of the current situation in the four cities under study - Blantyre in Malawi, Chinhoyi in Zimbabwe and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and Kitwe in Zambia. This report seeks to give an overview of the current situation in Chinhoyi with regards water and sanitation provision. During the first year, partners undertook stakeholder identification, bringing together organisations dealing with water and sanitation issues in Chinhoyi, and community-led profiling and mapping of the water and sanitation infrastructure in selected settlements in and around the city. The project attempted to understand the dynamics affecting the provision of safe water and sanitation services in a sustainable manner.
