This Paper provides guidance for increasing involvement of low income urban communities in accessing neighbourhood level sanitation services in densely populated areas, based on the experience of CBS demonstration projects in Indonesia and India. It further explores the demand-responsive approaches in community selection and informed choice while attempting to mainstream CBS as an urban planning tool with local governments. The Paper aims to contribute to the reduction of the mismatch of overall CBS implementation plans and the reality situation. This review highlights strategies for effective cooperation among stakeholders and the need for better sanitation mapping and prioritization as a first step toward strategic sanitation planning.
