    Abstract Since the 2000s, African cities have witnessed a series of interventions to improve water and sanitation. This brief outlines key lessons learned from the intervention experience, drawing on the UNU research project Multi- level Urban Governance for Total Sanitation (2011–2013) under the Education for Sustain - able Development in Africa (ESDA) Project. It highlights the importance of multi-actor approaches for promoting: (1) an institutional framework to coordinate civil society organi - zations, community-based organizations, and the state agencies across levels; (2) policy recognition of water and sanitation as socially embedded infrastructure with gendered dimensions; and (3) the relevance of scientific research and university education to ongoing policy interventions.
