Webinar 5: Reaching the Poorest with Sanitation Marketing
Date: Wednesday 13th March 2013
This session explores the critical question of how to integrate microfinance to existing sanitation markets to support the poor. Drawing on a case study example from rural Cambodia, this session examines practical steps practitioners can implement to encourage success of this coordination. Integrating microfinance with sanitation marketing may enable access for the poor in ways that do not discourage investment by those households with ability to pay.
This session is facilitated by Jeffrey Goldberg, working with WaterSHED and the Cambodian MFI Amret on consumer microfinancing options for sanitation, and Daroath Phav, Senior Program Coordinator at WaterSHED Cambodia.

NGOs, lending agencies, and the public sector are hard at work in meeting the global sanitation target. But what about the private sector, and what about the families that do not want to wait for the next NGO to knock on their door with a better toilet? Over the past couple of years, the Water and Sanitation Program’s (WSP) Sanitation Marketing strategy in Bangladesh has tried to address these concerns by stimulating the supply and demand of hygienic sanitation facilities through the mobilization of local entrepreneurs. The objective of Sanitation Marketing is for families to have the desire and the agency to move up the sanitation ladder on their own.

WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) for everyone, everywhere. It’s a vision for the future at the heart of global development dialogues. The UNICEF/WHO Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) has led work to propose what future WASH goals, targets and indicators should be between now and 2015. But how are WASH practitioners going to work differently to realise a vision of universal access to WASH?
