Sanitation Market System Development
Water For People firmly believes that market systems development (MSD) and the growth of commercially-viable sanitation businesses are the foundation for building sustainable, scalable, sanitation services in low- and middle-income countries. Our MSD approach to sanitation is rooted in the vision that no one is too poor to have safe and dignified sanitation, and we work towards this goal by building market systems of public & private sector actors and correcting market failures.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awarded a grant to Water For People from 2010 to June 2015 provided our first real opportunity to put MSD theory into practice. Learn more about the progress, learnings, and opportunities from this grant.
