This research project is commissioned under the
Urban Sanitation Research Initiative
, a 2017-2020 research programme core-funded by UK aid from the British people and managed by Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (
This project will deliver an assessment of the residency and poverty status of beneficiaries of the WSUP-supported SWEEP service in Dhaka, Bangladesh. SWEEP is a public-private partnership for faecal waste collection services, currently active in three Bangladeshi cities. In Dhaka, SWEEP is a partnership between Dhaka Water and Sewerage Authority (DWASA) and a local SME, Gulshan Clean & Care (GCC). Through the partnership, GCC provide faecal waste collection services to low-income, higher-income and institutional customers (for example, garment factories and hotels). As part of the lease-based agreement, GCC is required to maintain 30% of primary customers as low-income, defined as residing in a low-income community (LIC).
This research will aim to generate evidence that is of specific value to WSUP and the SWEEP partnership in developing a nuanced understanding of the residency and poverty status of individual SWEEP beneficiaries. This will be achieved through an assessment over a defined 5-month period, resulting in a robust estimate for i) the overall proportion of individual SWEEP beneficiaries who reside in LICs; and ii) the poverty status of SWEEP LIC beneficiaries.
