Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Arguably the most elegant aspect of an inelegant subject is how this city of 3.2 million residents, South Africa’s second largest, is solving monumental water and waste challenges in its jammed informal settlements. Durban is also a testbed for numerous strategies that turn human waste into usable compost or in other ways dispose of urine and feces without using fresh water to do it. But Durban’s most important innovation is its unwavering commitment to actually providing water and waste services to the poor. City leaders view providing fresh water, showers and clean toilets to more than 1 million residents in the city’s informal settlements as a moral responsibility. So many other big cities — Delhi, Lima, Manila, Mexico City, Mumbai, Ulan Bator — don’t really care.
