The report and briefing note of the Joint Evaluation of the GSF Programme in Togo are available now for download on WSSCC’s website in English and French.

The GSF-supported programme in Togo works to improve sanitation and hygiene for 1.65 million people living in the Regions of Savanes, Kara and Plateaux -nearly 40% of Togo’s rural population. Managed by UNICEF with an objective to hand over the management to the Ministry for Health and Social Protection (MSPS), the programme is a key contributor to the ‘Togo SANDAL’ national movement for an Open Defecation Free (ODF) Togo by 2025.

A joint evaluation of the programme was initiated in 2016 to identify the achievements and challenges of the implementation and guide the programme’s extension phase with lessons learned. It covered the period from September 2013 through March 2017 and sought to take into account on-going developments in the programme and the institutions involved, particularly the MSPS and the GSF itself.


Some of the main conclusions of the evaluation highlighted the relevance of the programme approach and strategies to achieving Togo’s national objectives for eliminating open defecation. It also noted that the programme has achieved impressive results during a short span of time with respect to other programme objectives, including capacity building at the sub-national level; advocacy to strengthen national policies, strategies and guidelines; and sharing of best practices within the programme and in the broader sector.
