Webinar: Involving The Private Sector In Increasing Access To Basic Sanitation In Bihar And Abidjan

Only 22% of Abidjan’s population has access to basic sanitation. Many low-income residents of the city live in compound houses of 4 to 45 persons, who share a common toilet. The situation is not too different in Bihar, India where only 30% of the population have access to basic sanitation, and open defecation is still rife.

The USAID Sanitation Service Delivery Project (SSD) held this webinar in April 2017 to explore successes and failures of the strategies from:

Conference

5th International Fecal Sludge Management Conference

This annual event provides the opportunity for professionals, governments, policy-makers, utilities, development partners, investors, industries and service providers to coordinate, develop, and share learning solutions for sustainably managing the whole non-sewered sanitation service chain. This year the FSM5 conference has joined forces with the AMCOW to co-convene with the AfricaSan 5 conference.

Partnership

Water and Development Alliance

The Water and Development Alliance (WADA) is a collaboration between the USAID and The Coca-Cola Company and its Foundations, managed by the Global Environment & Technology Foundation, to promote improved water management and expand clean water access to help build sustainable communities in the developing world.

Activity

Enhanced Agricultural Productivity, Food Security, and Natural Resources Management

The Permanent Interstate Committee for Drought Control in the Sahel (CILSS) conducts research and distributes information on climate and weather patterns, water management, market systems and agricultural statistics, and implements early-warning systems for ecological events that affect farmers. Through these endeavors, CILSS aims to help vulnerable populations of the Sahel and West Africa (WA) to better predict, adapt to and recover from their changing environment.

Activity

Sanitation Service Delivery

USAID/West Africa’s Sanitation Service Delivery (SSD) Program seeks to dramatically scale-up sanitation services delivery through market-based approaches that strategically complement the recent policy shifts and massive demand generation efforts in West Africa. The SSD program will develop, test, and scale market-based models, reaching all segments of the unserved population, to achieve and sustain an improved level of sanitation service over time.
