Enterprise Viability Case Study: A Retrospective Analysis of Rural Sanitation Enterprises in Cambodia

This case study examines the experience of sanitation enterprises that were supported by the WaterSHED 'Hands-Off Sanitation Marketing' intervention in Cambodia. The study is part of research addressing enterprise viability and sustainability questions, for which the Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Partnerships and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) project conducted retrospective studies in partnership with mature market-based sanitation (MBS) programs in Cambodia, as well as India (state of Bihar) and Nigeria.

It presents research findings and recommendations directed at MBS program implementers to help improve the viability and sustainability of the sanitation enterprises they support.
