Short description of the project:
Selling Sanitation works with sanitation businesses and governments to develop commercial and sustainable markets for affordable and desirable sanitation facilities.

Selling Sanitation is a joint IFC-WSP initiative that aims to help millions of people across Africa access household sanitation facilities they want and can afford. The market development approach is currently being piloted in Kenya, with planned expansion to other African countries by 2014.

Goal(s):
We define success as market transformation: new sanitation solutions manufactured at scale, sold and distributed through new channels, reaching underserved consumers that are most in need.

Objectives:
1) Support private businesses to design, manufacture and distribute new on-site sanitation and hand washing products that meet low-income consumer needs and preferences.
2) Support the government to develop and deliver a national behavior change communications and consumer awareness campaign.
3) Identify and test appropriate financing mechanisms and consumer lending products to support uptake of new sanitation products.
4) Build the enabling environment and institutional arrangements for local government, other stakeholders and the private sector to support and regulate the sanitation market.

Key components:
Selling Sanitation works with manufacturers, distributors, consumers, financial institutions, and governments to catalyze the sanitation market through:
• Business Development Services to remove first-mover barriers to market entry by supporting businesses to develop new affordable sanitation products and distribution channels to reach underserved consumers.
• Consumer Awareness to support ministries of health to develop and deliver national campaigns reaching millions with behaviour change messages and consumer information on available low-cost product options.
• Market Intelligence to demonstrate the viability of the market by providing data on market size, consumer preferences, key target segments and current trends. Market intelligence helps manufacturers, distributors and other businesses understand market opportunities and make informed decisions.
• Public Sector Engagement to improve the enabling environment for sanitation by working with government at all levels to increase uptake of improved hygienic latrines, and to facilitate and regulate a self-sustainable consumer market for sanitation.
• Pro-poor Financing to address financial constraints and bottlenecks for both consumers and businesses.
