Agreed, there should be a sytematic approach towards planning, and effective execution as well.

for "out houses"?
We had "out houses" in this country for decades before the water/sewer pipes were laid.
When they get close to full, you bury with dirt and start another hole.
It would be more sanitary then the scenario you are describing.

'tain't just in the third world.
My wife is a professor , and the university did a meet and greet bus tour this past year, and in one small town in northern Iowa, when the subject of rising tuition came up, the local residents complained that their sewer system had broken and there was no money to repair it,(yet alone pay tuition) so the sewage bubbled to the surface and flowed down the ditch on the side of the road
it seems that the 99% can expect increased poverty and "third world" problems right here at home

The one benefit of slums oddly enough is that they tend to lead to dense populations as space is at a premium and people only use the minimum area. Sadly however, slums develop without any control of location so can be very damaging to the environment.

Outhouses still require regular cleaning or the accumulations will fill up the hole. That is why the sewers exist so that someone doesn't have to come to take the sewage away by vehicle. As far as government regulations, the regulations may exist but corruption and lack of funds to create proper sewers are more likely to be the problem. Digging in the ground to put in pipe takes considerable effort and you either have to have heavy equipment or a lot of laborers in addition to the pipe which can be expensive. That's why I don't believe it is as simple as regulations.
