Take a look at how the leak detection team at JIRAMA, the national water utility in Madagascar, is at the forefront of preserving Antananarivo's most precious resource.
This Topic Brief sets out the process of institutional change undergone by Nairobi City Water & Sewerage Company (NCWSC) to extend services to the informal settlements of Nairobi.
Beginning with the creation of an Informal Settlements Department (ISD) in 2009, the utility has implemented a set of structural reforms, strategies and service delivery approaches which have engendered significant progress towards citywide service provision, and which can be instructive for utilities facing similar challenges across sub-Saharan Africa.
On the outskirts of Madagascar’s capital city, Antananarivo, getting enough water every day can be a difficult task.
The national water utility JIRAMA is extending the water network out to people living in informal settlements, thanks to support from the Water & Development Alliance (WADA), a partnership between USAID and Coca-Cola.
The 'Female-friendly guide', published in October 2018 and written by WaterAid, UNICEF and WSUP, is designed primarily for use by local authorities in towns and cities who are in charge of public and community toilets. It's also useful for national governments, public and private service providers, NGOs, donors and civil society organisations who play a role in delivering these services.
This guide presents an introduction to conceptualising and strengthening the enabling environment for faecal sludge management (FSM) services in low-income urban areas.
It is based on WSUP’s experience working with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop market-based solutions for on-site sanitation services in the cities of Dhaka and Chittagong (Bangladesh), Kisumu (Kenya) and Lusaka (Zambia).
The Water and Development Alliance (WADA) Madagascar project will lead to better health and cleanliness through improved access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services.

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.
In the fall of 2012, IDEO.org partnered with Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor to tackle the issue of open defecation. IDEO.org and WSUP were the recipients of a Development Innovation Ventures Stage One grant to test a hypothesis that the application of digital tools could effectively change behavior related to the management of human waste.
