Exploring alternative sources of funding for deploying sustainable sanitation technologies and services in Mongolia

Dear All,

Following study which has been published recently at the International Journal of Water Resources Development, deals with some alternative sources of funding to deploy sustainable sanitation technologies in Mongolia which can be applicable to other parts of the world. Full article can be downloaded from the following link:

Abstract:

One of the major challenges for deploying sustainable sanitation technologies and services around the world is financing. The present study applied both qualitative (key informant interviews) and quantitative (household survey) methods to explore sources of alternative financing in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, towards deploying sustainable sanitation technologies and services. Microfinance organizations, government subsidies and mining industries may represent potential sources of financing for the implementation of sustainable sanitation technologies and services in Mongolia. Moreover, building social capital among Ger residents and reinventing the idea of ‘corporate WASH responsibility’ could constitute new directions for the future.

Best regards
Nazim
