Content - Summary

Scaling up private sector provision of improved sanitation to the poor requires addressing the commercial constraints that confront the sector. These constraints are inherent in the technologies used and the supply chains that support service provision.
Governments, development partners, and the business community could help relax these constraints in a variety of ways (table 18.1). They could encourage larger businesses and funders of sanitation to develop technologies with more consumer appeal; help reduce distribution costs; inject more proactive and commercial coordination into the supply chain; and help develop financial products that would enable poor households to manage the upfront costs of purchasing latrines, toilets, and septic tanks. Over the longer term, they could solve some of the infrastructural problems that raise the costs of connecting rural markets to urban centers of production of components and materials.
The study’s recommendations focus primarily on the constraints to expanded private provision of on-site sanitation inherent in current technologies and in the supply chains that support service provision. It is these constraints that lead enterprises to offer products and services households are not very interested in buying.
