I watched Mr. Toilet's video and it is a good piece. How do I get it in a local language?

Dear Esther,
Thank you for picking this question!
What leverage do we have to support local government to commit financially when they have limited resources? Push for governmental transfers?'

Could you please remind us what the example given by BRAC was?
From my experience, here are a few ideas on how to support municipalities to obtain more funds to support access to sanitation
- Advocate for governmental transfer (related to water, sanitation, climate change and health)
- Support municipality to increase collection of taxes (e.g. property tax) and agree on a percentage of extra revenue to be ring-fenced to sanitation.
- Ring-fence a percentage of water fees for sanitation at municipal level
- Support municipality to connect with other municipalities in the north (e.g. the “Oudin Santini law in France enables municipalities, districts and regions to mobilise up to 1% of their own water and sanitation budget to fund international cooperation initiatives in the sector)
- Engage the municipality to commit to a budget line for sanitation (even with small amount) if no budget line exists yet.
Are there any other ideas?
