Abstract: This paper describes the activities of Class-A, established as a platform for multi-stakeholder partnership and learning alliance in Maputo, Mozambique to develop and pilot a methodology to assess risks associated with sanitation. The Participatory Rapid Sanitation System Risk Assessment (PRSSRA) methodology uses local knowledge to prioritise areas where community members are most at risk and to identify parts of the sanitation chain to which high risk can be attributed. The participatory nature of the methodology also gives communities the opportunity to identify their needs and express their priorities to the municipality. This paper outlines the methodology, the challenges and successes of its application it in two low income neighbourhoods of Maputo, Mozambique and the next step in refining the methodology.
