For Additional Reading This report comprehensively documents the state of septage management for onsite sanitation systems in many Asian cities. It provides a regional analysis of key challenges and existing good practices related to septage management. The key finding is that most countries neglect septage management, which results in significant urban water, environmental and public health damages. Nevertheless, a number of countries and cities in the region have established programs that can be replicated.
