SanMark-CITY: Intelligent Design in Urban Sanitation Marketing - Fostering Adaptation and Evolution of Innovative Technologies for Urban On-Site Sanitation in Bangladesh

2013 - 2015 • ICCO, ICCO Cooperation, ICCO Foundation

Purpose

To explore the critical gap in introducing, adapting and sustaining affordable on-site sanitation technologies on a large scale and to adapt and develop commercialization channels for 4 improved on-site sanitation technologies.

Activities

Drawing on its growing thought leadership in combining sanitation technology, ICCO Cooperation along with two other implementing partners i.e. International Development Enterprises (iDE) and Dushtha Shasthya Kendra (DSK) proposes to “adapt and evolve” four promising SanTechs similar to those developed through the Gates Foundation’s Reinvent the Toilet Challenges (RTTC) and Grand Challenges Explorations (GCE) to the realities and market systems of urban Bangladesh through the “Sanitation Marketing for Urban Onsite Sanitation in Bangladesh”, or “SanMark-CITY” project.

SanMark-CITY will explore critical gap that currently exist in introducing, adapting, and sustaining affordable sanitation technologies at scale for slums in urban Bangladesh and will inform key stakeholders in the public, private and nongovernmental sectors on how best to support the diffusion of such technologies for maximum impact.

ICCO Cooperation, as an International Development Organization, with its roots in the Netherlands, works across 44 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Throughout our 50 years of history, ICCO has had remarkable experiences in working together with local partners for community welfare and development. Our development solutions center around our twin core principle of sustainable livelihoods and dignity and by linking our two core principles we aim to achieve sustainable solutions for the target communities we work for, primarily women, children and marginalized and excluded communities.In all our programs under fair economic development, food security, fair climate and WASH, we collaborate with multi-stakeholders like private sector, government, partner organizations, knowledge institutes and community based organizations to materialize our core innovation on the ground. Appealing to people's strength: that's what ICCO's development work is based on. As partner to enterprising people we seek parties that share our ideas of creating a world without poverty and injustice.
