Re: AfricaSan5 side event: Market-based Rural Sanitation

Date: 22 February 2019
Time: 8:30AM-9:00AM | Registration
9:00AM-11:00AM | Side event
Venue: Park Inn by Radisson-29 Heerengracht Street, Foreshore (Heerengracht Conference Room)
(This event will be held in English)

Join the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, U.S. Agency for International Development, and UNICEF for a side event on Market-based Rural Sanitation.

Inadequate access to sanitation remains a significant problem globally. The scale of investment required to deliver sanitation goods and services to those who lack access is beyond the capacity of public finance alone, pointing towards the role of markets in the provision of on-site sanitation.

But many markets for sanitation goods and services in low-income countries remain poorly developed, calling for better quality programming at scale, and presenting opportunities for new approaches and partnerships.

Join us for a side event with governments, civil society, donors, and the private sector to share knowledge and experiences accelerat ing sanitation coverage through market-based approaches.
