This report provides the latest information on the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF), established by WSSCC in 2008 to boost finances into countries with high needs for sanitation. Currently operational in eleven countries in Asia and Africa, GSF supports national programmes developed through a consultative process with governments, local non-governmental organizations and their associations, private companies, and international development partners. All programmes supported by GSF address the problem of inadequate sanitation and hygiene by focusing on behaviour change. These include a combination of community-led total sanitation (CLTS), securing the active involvement of local governments and other institutions and supporting entrepreneurship in the marketing of sanitation solutions.
In this report, the reader will find the main results in ‘headline’ form for the Global Sanitation Fund programme as of 31 December 2013. Also presented are cumulative numerical results in dashboard form, for the Global Sanitation Fund as a whole and for each country with a contracted Executing Agency, and descriptions of the various results indicators. The country profiles also provide more detail on the national Global Sanitation Fund activities. Other sections present the Global Sanitation Fund’s further added value, some illustrative perspectives and case studies, and a full listing of active Sub-grantees.
