Today, 2.6 billion people live without access to improved sanitation.
Of these, 75 percent live in rural communities. To address this challenge,
WSP is working with governments and local private sectors to build
capacity and strengthen performance monitoring, policy, financing, and other components needed to develop and institutionalize large scale, sustainable rural sanitation programs. With a focus on building a rigorous evidence base to support replication, WSP combines Community-Led Total Sanitation, behavior change communication, and sanitation marketing to generate sanitation demand and strengthen the supply of sanitation products and services, leading to improved health for people in rural areas.
