Politics in the time of cholera: Zambia’s U-turn on street vending (All Africa)

Jan 30, 2018

All Africa published an op-ed authored by Danielle Resnick on the fallout from the recent cholera outbreak in Zambia on street vendors. In the article, Resnick argued informal vending must be effectively but also humanely managed to improve basic sanitation while avoiding unpredictable bans that hurt the most vulnerable in Lusaka. “The challenge will be to ensure that long-term policy commitments to a water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) agenda are sustained,” said Resnick.
