Public Funding for Sanitation:The many faces of sanitation subsidies. A primer

Given that many of those who lack access are extremely poor and given the public-health benefits of universal access to sanitation, public subsidies to increase access seem an obvious policy response. However, many commentators have suggested that public subsidies have failed to significantly increase access and may indeed have stifled service provision. Others suggest that there are insufficient public funds to address the global sanitation crisis so discussion of subsidies is little more than a distraction. The argument is often heated and rarely draws on empirical evidence.
