Briefing Note: Financial Sustainability of WASH Services 19.12.2012

Outcomes of the 28th AGUASAN Workshop, 18 to 22 June, 2012.

The framework outlined during the workshop and described in the briefing note understands itself as a contribution to the shift in emphasis we need to make, from expanding the coverage of services to delivering services that are sustained into the future. It is applicable in a broad range of WASH contexts (drinking-water and sanitation services, at system, utility or areal level) by a large audience (practitioners, utility managers, policy makers, researchers, etc.) at situation analysis, strategy development, budgeting, implementation, monitoring & evaluation as well as lobbying/advocacy stages of sector endeavors. It links to existing instruments for assessing more in-depth the key elements of financial sustainability and for designing as well as implementing the appropriate answers.

The briefing note is available at here.
