Global Sanitation Fund Progress Update – August 2014


This report provides the latest information on the GSF, established by WSSCC in 2008 to boost finances into countries with high needs for sanitation.

This report provides the latest information on the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF), established by WSSCC in 2008 to boost finances into countries with high needs for sanitation. Currently operational in eleven countries in Asia and Africa, GSF supports national programmes developed through a consultative process with governments, local non-governmental organizations and their associations, private companies, and international development partners. All programmes supported by GSF address the problem of inadequate sanitation and hygiene by focusing on behaviour change. These include a combination of community-led total sanitation (CLTS), securing the active involvement of local governments and other institutions and supporting entrepreneurship in the marketing of sanitation solutions. In this report, the reader will find the main results in ‘headline’ form for the Global Sanitation Fund programme as of 31 December 2013. Also presented are cumulative numerical results in dashboard form, for the Global Sanitation Fund as a whole and for each country with a contracted Executing Agency, and descriptions of the various results indicators. The country profiles also provide more detail on the national Global Sanitation Fund activities. Other sections present the Global Sanitation Fund’s further added value, some illustrative perspectives and case studies, and a full listing of active Sub-grantees.

Fonds Mondial pour l’Assainissement - Rapport d’avancement – Mis à jour en août 2014 - En 2014, les programmes financés par le Fonds Mondial pour l’Assainissement (GSF) ont permis à 3,1 millions de personnes de disposer de toilettes améliorées. Ce chiffre a quasiment doublé en un an (1,6 million en juin 2013). L’augmentation constante du nombre de personnes vivant dans un environnement FDAL et de personnes disposant de toilettes améliorées est encourageante. Ce résultat tend à montrer que les investissements consentis par le WSSCC au cours des premières années pour mettre en place des processus de consultation, instaurer de nouveaux systèmes et présenter les méthodes d’assainissement total piloté par la communauté aux agences de mise en œuvre et aux autorités locales ont été judicieux.

The first part of the diagnosis – an assessment comprising of visits to six countries (Ethiopia, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo) and a review of documentation across all GSF-supported programmes – was completed in 2017, resulting in this study. While confirming that many people who may be considered disadvantaged have benefitted positively from GSF-supported programmes, the study emphasizes that more proactive attention is needed to ensure no one is left behind. Several recommendations are offered to better integrate EQND throughout the components and stages of all GSF-supported programmes.Summarized version of the study, including the Executive Summary, selected case studies and GSF reflections.Cadrage et diagnostic de l’approche du Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement sur l’égalité et la non-discrimination: Résumé analytique, études de cas et réflexions.Annexes related to the study.

Global Sanitation Fund

The Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Programme (CRSHIP), supported by the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF), works to increase sustained access to improved sanitation and promote good hygiene practices in rural communities. Plan International USA reviewed the programming experience within the Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Program and developed this synthesis of insights, based on an array of programme and performance-related reports released during the first three years of the programme. This review is designed to assist local advocacy efforts to bring Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) to scale and share emerging themes and lessons learned to date from programming experience of relevance to other implementing actors in the WASH sector.
