In this webinar, Holly Dentz will present findings from the fifth in a series of USAID Water Communications and Knowledge Management (CKM) Project ex-post evaluations. This evaluation addresses the Millennium Water and Sanitation Program (PEPAM/USAID) in Senegal. Implemented from 2009–2014 by Research Triangle Institute and a consortium of partners, PEPAM/USAID aimed to improve sustainable access to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) in four regions of Senegal.

The evaluation findings address water point construction and management as well as three different approaches used to improve water and sanitations service access: Community-led total sanitation (CLTS) with a water incentive, subsidy for water and sanitation services, and a hybrid of CLTS-subsidy.
