Short description of the project:
This project, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Stone Family Foundation, the World Bank WSP and the Global Sanitation Fund is for the rapid scale up of Sanitation Marketing to move toward the Cambodian MDG of 30% rural sanitation coverage by 2015. During the project period, iDE catalyzed both supply and demand for the ‘Easy Latrine, facilitating the sale of more than 141,096 improved latrines to rural households reaching 663,151 people (based on 4.7 people per household).
Goals and objectives:
To enable large numbers of rural Cambodian households to access, and consistently use, sanitary latrines through vibrant sanitation markets, providing them with health, economic, and quality-of-life benefits.
Use the experience and evidence developed during implementation to replicate sustainable, market-based solutions to improve sanitation in other developing countries.
Achieve national scale with market-based sanitation solutions in rural Cambodia and support the dissemination and replication of the Sanitation Marketing approach into other countries.
