10 reasons to partner with the Global Sanitation Fund

Global Sanitation Fund
The Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) invests in behaviour change activities that enable large numbers of people in developing countries to improve their sanitation and adopt good hygiene practices. Established in 2008 by the UNOPS-hosted Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC), the GSF is the only global fund solely dedicated to sanitation and hygiene. The GSF is community-based, government-supported and commercially operated. Households and local governments work with local entrepreneurs and a network of hundreds of partners. Together, they create the conditions for tens of millions of people to live in open defecation free environments and access adequate toilets and handwashing facilities. Discover the 10 reasons to partner with the GSF in this brochure.

Global Sanitation Fund Progress Report 2013

Global Sanitation Fund
In 2013, the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) contributed directly to efforts to eradicate the practice of open defecation, increase use of improved sanitation and enhance hygiene practices. Large-scale programmes funded by GSF in 11 countries in Africa and Asia resulted in more than 3.7 million people living in open defecation free (ODF) environments and more than 2.7 million people with improved forms of sanitation. This progress report presents the on-going results of GSF programme implementation.Fonds Mondial pour l’Assainissement - Rapport d’avancement 2013 - En 2013, le Fonds Mondial pour l’Assainissement (GSF) a contribué directement aux actions menées pour éradiquer la défécation a l’air libre, accroitre l’usage des installations sanitaires améliorées et renforcer les pratiques hygiène. Grace au financement par le GSF de programmes a grande échelle dans 11 pays d’Afrique et d’Asie, plus de 3,7 millions de personnes vivent dans des environnements exempts de défécation a l’air libre (FDAL) et plus de 2,7 millions de personnes ont accès a des structures d’assainissement améliorées.

Global Sanitation Fund Progress Report 2012

Global Sanitation Fund
2012 was the year in which the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) built upon initial accomplishments to achieve tangible progress in a significant number of countries. Between 2008 and 2011, WSSCC worked intensively to design and implement the GSF model globally and at country level. Through the Global Sanitation Fund, WSSCC had committed US$ 65 million by 31 December 2012 in ten national programmes to ensure that by 2016, 16.28 million people have improved sanitation and that 24.58 million people live in healthy and safe environments which are free of open defecation. That commitment rapidly yielded results in villages and communities across Africa and Asia. It is a commitment shared by national partners, the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) and Global Sanitation Fund donors.Fonds Mondial pour l’Assainissement - Rapport d’avancement 2012 - En 2012, le Fonds Mondial pour l’Assainissement (GSF) s’est appuyé sur ses réalisations initiales pour accomplir des progrès tangibles dans un nombre significatif de pays. Entre 2008 et 2011, le WSSCC a travaillé sans relâche pour concevoir et mettre en œuvre le programme du GSF aux niveaux national et international. Par le biais du Fonds Mondial pour l’Assainissement, le WSSCC s’était engagé à verser 65 millions de dollars US à dix programmes nationaux au plus tard le 31 décembre 2012, afin de garantir que, d’ici 2016, 16,28 millions de personnes aient accès à un assainissement amélioré et que 24,58 millions de personnes vivent dans des environnements salubres et sécurisés, exempts de défécation à l’air libre. Cet engagement portait rapidement ses fruits dans les villages et les communautés d’Afrique et d’Asie. C’est un engagement que partagent les partenaires nationaux, le Conseil de concertation pour l’approvisionnement en eau et l’assainissement (WSSCC) et les donateurs du Fonds Mondial pour l’Assainissement.

Promising Pathways - Innovations and best practices in CLTS at scale

Global Sanitation Fund
Promising Pathways - The astonishing story of how Madagascar grew from 10 to 10,000 villages free of open-defecation in just three years. Based on fieldwork conducted at community and national levels in Madagascar, the research for this publication was guided by Kamal Kar, founder and pioneer of CLTS, and conducted by a CLTS Foundation team. Promising Pathways is one outcome of research into the process and practices of Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) as implemented by the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) programme in Madagascar – known as the Fonds d’Appui pour l’Assainissement (FAA). This is one of the first programmes strongly engaging with the challenges of scaling up CLTS, and results are emerging as striking: in three and a half years, the FAA programme has achieved 7007 Open Defecation Free (ODF) communities; 728 ODF fokontany (sub-commune level units) and 15 entire ODF communes. The research on which this document draws aims to understand the factors behind FAA Madagascar’s emerging success, highlighting why and how particular strategies are contributing to the scale-up process.
