To significantly mobilise the financial resources and to develop a pipeline of investment projects that will support the African countries to meet the SDG targets in urban sanitation
The project will promote the adaptation and much wider application of tested approaches as well as support fine-tuning developed business innovations leading to robust affordable and financially and environmentally sustainable sanitation services for urban inhabitants in sub-Saharan Africa, with a focus on the urban poor.
