Short description of the project:
This project will develop, test and demonstrate city-wide sanitation service delivery models for the two main types of urban centers in Bangladesh (city corporations and pourashavas, thereby directly improving environmental health and well-being of the population, as well as demonstrating to sector stakeholders:
- how integrating FSM business models contributes to achieving city wide service delivery faster
- which roles the private sector can play in FSM and how they can be supported,
- the effectiveness and efficiency of new technology options (resulting from other BMGF work),
- how to ensure that these sanitation solutions are inclusive, benefitting poor households and workers, and not only wealthier neighborhoods
The project will be a success if city-wide, pro-poor, accountable, safe and sustainable fecal sludge management services are demonstrated for the urban context in Bangladesh, showing improvement in the living environment and contributing to the health and well-being of the urban population.
- Consumer behavior change and demand creation for services
- Development of market-based solutions for improved sanitation and sludge emptying services
- Strengthening of sanitation governance and enabling environment for services
- Improved treatment, disposal and re-use of sludge
- Sector learning around fecal sludge management and city-wide service delivery
