To develop potential financing and business models for Maharashtra to support them in moving towards ODF+ status.
Global reviews of sanitation finance suggest that public finance is now being recognized as a major source of funds. It is also recognized that it is necessary to use these to leverage additional fuds from private and commercial sources. In India, there is little documentation of public finance allocated to sanitation, and FSSM in particular. There is also no systematic study of private sector enterprises providing FSSM services and their business models.
This project intends to explore potential financing and business models for FSSM in urban India through landscape studies across four states. It will focus on the state of Maharashtra. The landscape studies will also include other BMGF States: Odisha, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.
The key objectives of this project are:
• Sector players in Maharashtra and other key states develop policy and investment frameworks for public finance to meet the requirements across the sanitation service chain, and explore innovative financing options across the FSSM service chain.
• To increase interest and capacity of different stakeholders through consultations.
Research or implementation partners: Local Governments, State Government of Maharashtra, Dalberg Global Development Advisors and All India Institute of Local Self Government (AIILSG), Mumbai, Maharashtra. A Technical Advisory Committee has also been set up.
