Acting USAID Administrator John Barsa's Remarks at Sanitation and Water for All Finance Ministers Meeting
The WASH sector requires significant and continuous public funding. And private sector finance must complement those public investments. But we recognize that private sector investment may remain low until service providers adopt stronger business models and practices.
To face this challenge head on, I’m pleased to announce today that USAID is extending our flagship WASH Financing activity until September 2022. Our country Missions will provide up to $10 million more to close financing gaps and mobilize further resources to ensure that all citizens can access adequate water, sanitation, and hygiene services.
