Leadership capacity development on non sewered sanitation and FSM

2017 - 2019 • Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI)

Purpose

To enable policymakers and government officials to develop effective and evidence-based policies around non-sewered sanitation and fecal sludge management

Activities

During 2017–2019, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI) aims to deliver leadership capacity development programs targeting government decision makers, officials in implementing agencies, and professional staff of international organizations. The topics will cover innovative design solutions and policy instruments to accelerate implementation of NSS and FSM components in projects supported by development partners in Asian developing countries.

Working closely with ADB Headquarters and various knowledge partners, ADBI aims to develop and deliver a 1-week high-level leadership program to high-level participants. The program will comprise evidence-based case studies prepared by ADBI and knowledge partners on NSS and FSM policies and programs. Additionally, ADBI’s annual work program regularly convenes high-level decision makers, especially from ministries of finance in Asian developing countries. In these programs, ADBI will propose evidence-based recommendations.

Government ownership for and continued commitment to NSS and FSM is a constant challenge. In 2018, ADBI and its development partners will convene high-level round-table meetings to address the challenge in a two-pronged manner.

Government officials, policy makers, and professional staff of international organizations contribute to innovative design and accelerated implementation of NSS and FSM components in projects supported by development partners in Asian developing countries.

This investment will enhance technical knowledge of decision makers and senior officials from ADB's Developing Member Countries from South Asia (particularly from India) and senior officials of development banks (ADB, World Bank, IsDB, and JICA) ADB's senior officials on FSM and non-sewered sanitation.

Plans are under way to deliver the following:

1. Through a high-level leadership program, ADBI and its development partners will actively liaise with national governments to identify participants who have a role in decision-making and in choosing project locations to implement NSS and FSM over the medium to long term.

2. ADBI aims to actively engage and effectively transfer relevant knowledge and skills to high-level participants through highly intense evidence-based case studies.

3. Through evidence-based policy recommendations, ADBI will prioritize and create an enabling environment to implement NSS and FSM in government programs.

4. ADBI will also partner with national and regional knowledge partners (from academia and think tanks) who can replicate and scale up leadership capacity programs for policy makers and government leaders.
