Annotation:Exploring the increasingly pressing problems related to urbanization in the developing world, Guibbert argues that conventional, state-sponsored sanitation methods are inadequate to meet the current “urban crisis.” Instead, he advocates a “systems approach” to sanitation in which cities are understood as “urban ecosystems” and endorses a “popular ecology” framework in which collaborative, democratic management is combined with a shared commitment to meet the needs of the poorest members of society.
