Content - Summary

This library entry contains background documents for a grant that Neil Ghosh is leading and which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Further Information is also provided in the link below.

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
