The guide, titled, “Developing Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Finance Strategies,” was produced by UNICEF and co-published by SWA, Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the IRC Water and Sanitation Centre.
The World Bank has estimated that to meet Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Targets 6.1 and 6.2 alone, capital financing would need to triple to US$ 114 billion per annum, with additional funds needed to cover operating and maintenance costs.
With the financing guide, governments and key decision-makers can better understand the benefits of investing time and resources in water, sanitation and hygiene financing. The publication also provides tips for engaging relevant stakeholders to garner support, as well as case studies from countries which have successfully used finance-related strategies.
