Johannesburg - South Africa will host the 12th annual World Toilet Summit in Durban in December 2012, the SA Toilet Organisation (Sato) said on Friday.
The summit, a World Toilet Organisation (WTO) event, is expected to attract over 1 000 delegates and exhibitors to Durban.
It will focus on human rights and health and hygiene.
Sato and the WTO aim to improve the quality of human life and to ensure dignity through the provision of adequate sanitation solutions for all people.
"It is estimated that up to 2.6 billion people throughout the world do not have access to proper sanitation," the statement said.
