Strengthening Public-Sector-Enabling Environments to Support Sanitation Enterprises

Water For People is implementing sanitation business approaches and seeks to discover the conditions that make these more likely to succeed. Public sector influence is one condition that has the potential to facilitate or hinder any private-sector-driven sanitation program. This study aims to understand how the public sector enabling environment be enhanced and how NGOs can effectively engage the public sector to support sanitation businesses. The results are based on experiences from Water For People country program staff that work with government on a regular basis and have received substantial public support and collaboration through strong partnerships. The results point towards building a case for sanitation market support which compliments existing government aims, involving government partners from the very beginning as being crucial step, and that NGOs can support government action by providing specific ideas and research for how best to support local sanitation businesses.
