Message:
Abstract:
The dominant policy decision emphasis on urbanisation problem in developing countries is itsrate of growth, ignoring the level of provision of resources, including the infrastructure, to match this growth. It isagainst this background that the paper undertook a broad analysis of the state of infrastructure in developing countriesusing such indices as access and quality of water supply, sanitation and solid waste management, to explore how theirprovision and improvements over time could gradually match the rate of urbanisation. Extensive literature review wasadopted for data collection in articles and journals which were analysized using content analysis technique. There issignificant proportion of population using unimproved drinking water sources (42%), unimproved sanitation facilities(50%) and without access to designated waste disposal sites (44%). Water, sanitation and hygiene are key to improvinghealth and development. Providing sustainable access to these infrastructures is the most important things that can bedone to reduce disease and improve human development.
