Re: City Partnerships for Urban Sanitation Service Delivery (BMGF and DfID funded)

Dear Roshan, can you inform us which cities were successful out of the 11 that submitted second phase proposals? I know Freetown City Council were not successful. Given the current situation in Sierra Leone, this did not come as too great a surprise. But it was good to get some very positive feedback about the proposal submitted by FCC/GOAL/IWA. best regards, Jonathan

Re: City Partnerships for Urban Sanitation Service Delivery (BMGF and DfID funded)

Dear all,

I thought it would be important to answer Jonathans question from October 2014 (he had asked: "Dear Roshan, can you inform us which cities were successful out of the 11 that submitted second phase proposals?").
I received the following information from the BMGF:

The following applicants received Phase 2 funding under the DfID co-funded City Partnership RFP:
In Africa: In Asia:
In addition they (BMGF) also have other city sanitation grant (under different grant arrangements, outside of this one). For example: Orissa, Accra (Ga West), Kumasi, Khulna (the Khulna project includes two smaller towns nearby). Out of these, the Khulna project is co-funded with DfID.

All these cities gave short presentation at a meeting on 18 January 2015 in Hanoi which are available on the SuSanA website here: www.susana.org/en/resources/conference-materials-2/97-2015

I am also attaching the presentations from 18 January 2015 of those five cities that were successful with their Phase 2 application under this funding scheme "City Partnerships for Urban Sanitation Service Delivery (BMGF and DfID funded)".

Note that the presentations were only brief (about 10 minutes each) and can therefore only provide a snapshot of what is going on in those cities.

By the way: If you are interested in city sanitation projects co-funded by DFID then please see here in the new SuSanA projects database, by applying the filter button for DFID as a funding source (all these projects - 14 so far - will be populated with more details in the coming weeks and months; more projects - funded by all sorts of funding sources - are planned to be added this year):

I wish everyone involved in these cities good luck with the implementation of these projects! Please do keep us informed of progress regularly.
