pathway to scaling sanitation

scaling Sanitation Services within everyone forever districts and beyond

Water For People evaluates the gaps that exist in the sanitation value chain, where the market is not adequately serving a population with safe services, and identifies opportunities to develop and strengthen delivery models for products and services.

Sometimes, this means developing core services where there are none, such as facilitating the emergence and growth of pit emptying businesses to service households that have no service. As market systems develop, this more often means strengthening and improving the efficiency of core services, such as supporting an association of pit emptying businesses for the overall growth and sustainability of the services in that market.

The Path to Scaling Sanitation graphic below presents the framework that is applied to our market-based sanitation work, in addition to the water and sanitation work we implement in Everyone Forever districts.

Financiar agua y saneamiento: Un potencial que las Instituciones Microfinancieras deben explorar 

Por Cesar López
Las instituciones microfinancieras (IMFs) de América Latina, y específicamente en Guatemala, han mostrado mayor apertura a iniciativas de financiamiento no tradicionales, incluyendo la vivienda popular, paneles solares, estufas ahorradoras de leña y agricultura sostenible. También estamos comenzando a ver las primeras luces de financiar a pequeña escala soluciones para agua y saneamiento descentralizado para familias sin acceso a soluciones dignas e higiénicas para el hogar.
