Tired of reading/hearing “sanitation is not progressing due to lack of political will” or “the key driver behind this success story is a sanitation champion”?
Then have a look at this research we have just published.
In it, we try to open the ‘political will’ black box and learn from the experience of three countries – India, Indonesia and Ethiopia – where there was high-level political commitment to sanitation. We look at the incentives shaping how that high level priority is transmitted throughout the government machinery and is accompanied by course correction to address implementation blockages, the two critical conditions to turn political will into action and accelerated progress.
