As a result of population growth, urbanization and economic development, global waste production is increasing exponentially. To address the social, economic and environmental challenges that step from this production, SUEZ has developed a suite of five flexible and complementary solutions to optimize its waste recycling and recovery services.

WeCo's eco-friendly public toilets are part of an innovative approach to sustainable development by offering a response to environmental water-saving issues. Fully self-contained, they operate through an integrated wastewater recycling system.
This closed-circuit flushing technology makes the toilets completely independent of any connection to the sanitary system. In addition, electrical autonomy can be achieved by combining photovoltaic panels with a battery storage unit.
CityTaps provides the only solution that enables low-income populations to pay-as-they-go for at-home water, entailing increased access to water for everyone and a better management of this scarce resource. The CTSuite solution combines the world’s only smart and prepaid water meter (CTMeter) and an integrated software management system (CTCloud) that processes pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) payments through mobile money.
Do4Africa or Digital Observer for Africa (www.do4africa.org) is a platform that identifies and lists innovative and digital projects in Africa. Furthermore, the platform collects open datasets relating to the African continent.
It is a game-changing platform that facilitates the sharing of high-quality and up-to-date data on the technical and social innovations across Africa. The platform is built on 3 core values: common interest, collaboration and open data.
Located in the city of Sémé-Podji in Benin, Wexity is the first digital tool specially designed to enable local authorities to manage all urban objects: networks, housing, environment, risks, local economy, equipment and so on, thus serving the needs of sustainable urban development.

Since 2015, the City and Eurometropolis of Strasbourg, in association with GESCOD (Grand Est Solidarités et Coopérations pour le Développement) and their partners, have been working with the Douala Urban Community on the construction and renovation of 47 km of storm drains, to strengthen their project management and local governance capacities in the field of urban sanitation.
Because young girls are little or poorly informed, because too few women manage to secure condom use, because contraception, access to treatment and health too often remain "women's business": inequalities between the sexes are considered to be one of the factors driving the AIDS epidemic.
Managing household waste is a huge challenge in developing countries. Municipalities are facing increasing amounts of waste with limited financial resources. When collected, they are usually buried haphazardly on the periphery.
Africa is in a historic phase of rapid city building. It is creating transport infrastructure and systems that will shape the continent far into the future.
Making these transport systems safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable for all is fundamental to livable, productive, low carbon and healthy African cities.
Most African cities rely on some form of semi-formal transport, often minibuses, dominated by fragmented private operators.
