Title: ENGAGING THE PRIVATE SECTOR IN URBAN SANITATION SERVICES: A REVIEW OF SOUTH ASIAN CITIES
In 2013, BMGF/DFID initiated a partnership to promote private sector participation in non-networked sanitation and improve capabilities of sanitation service authorities to govern these partnerships. Targeted cities were expected to have a clear mandate to provide urban services for all, including for the non-networked poor and interest to develop and test models to engage the private sector in a coordinated, formal manner through structured service-level agreements (SLAs), as a form of pubprivate partnerships, to ensure the delivery of equitable, sustainable sanitation services at a city level.
Nine cities (5 in Sub-Saharan Africa, 4 in South Asia) with demonstrated evidence of long term commitment to improving sanitation service outcomes were selected to benefit from this opportunity. This report shows the second project phase. BMGF/DfID commissioned IFMR LEAD, India, to undertake a rapid review of the outcomes of this partnership portfolio in South Asian cities and identify lessons which can be applied to future projects and in cities’ future investments in sanitation services.
