The Evidence Programme on Sanitation and Hygiene (EPSH) stems from a strategic partnership between WSSCC and the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie). Formed in 2014, this partnership features two equally committed parties with vast expertise. As a global membership organization WSSCC embodies the values of collective spirit and solidarity, encouraging collaboration across the board while exercising leadership and bringing diverse voices together as one. By funding rigorous impact evaluations and systematic reviews and by making evidence accessible and useful to policymakers and practitioners, 3ie and WSSCC are helping to improve the lives of people living in poverty.

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 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.
