Sanitation Finance in Rural Cambodia
World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). February 2012 - This document presents the findings of a study on sanitation finance in Cambodia. This guidance note contains an introduction on sanitation financing and subsidies, stating the cases for subsidies as well as some of their practical pitfalls. The study used data (as of late 2009) from two case studies of rural sanitation finance in Cambodia to illustrate the practical issues, supplemented by preliminary data from two sanitation marketing projects. The study also examined the potential use and effectiveness of (hardware) subsidies, conditional cash transfers (CCTs), and other financing approaches relevant for sanitation improvement. The document ends with recommendations for improved sanitation finance, including practical suggestions for sanitation programs in Cambodia.

The Challenge of Financing Sanitation for Meeting the Millennium Development Goals
World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). 2004 - In addressing the challenge of financing sanitation, this paper explores three strategic issues: (a) ways to find effective strategies and funding mechanisms for sanitation promotion while ensuring rapid service expansion, (b) ways to leverage household, community, local government and other market based resources for the sector while ensuring demand responsive approaches, (c) ways to (re)design public finance strategies for sanitation which focus on identifying: approaches for accelerating sustainable sanitation access, institutional mandates, sources of finance and financing mechanisms, trade-offs in allocation and performance of monitoring systems. These issues are developed using examples and case studies from several countries. The paper concludes with actions required by key stakeholders.

Water and Sanitation in the World’s Cities: Local Action for Global Goals
The world’s governments agreed at the Millennium Summit to halve the number of people who lack access to safe water, mainly in the world’s cities, by 2015. With rapidly growing urban populations the challenge is immense. Water and Sanitation in the World’s Cities is a comprehensive and authoritative assessment of the problems and how they can be addressed. This influential publication by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) sets out in detail the scale of inadequate provision of water and sanitation. It describes the impacts on health and economic performance, showing the potential gains of remedial action; it analyses the proximate and underlying causes of poor provision and identifies information gaps affecting resource allocation; it outlines the consequences of further deterioration; and it explains how resources and institutional capacities – public, private and community – can be used to deliver proper services through integrated water resource management.

Identifying the Potential for Results-Based Financing for Sanitation
World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). November 2011 - This working paper aims to identify practical ideas for advancing the use of innovative financing mechanisms focused on results and performance, with a view to supporting the delivery of sustainable sanitation services. To this end, the document reviews: (1) The rationale for examining Results-Based Financing (RBF) instruments for sanitation; (2) Current issues with sanitation, where "misaligned incentives" mean that inadequate services are being provided or demanded; (3) How public funding, if allocated based on results, could help with realigning incentives; and (4) Common issues and challenges with the design of RBF instruments.

This publication looks at small urban centres which tend to be overlooked, however theyaare the first tier markets and service providers for rural enterprise and development. Attaining the MDGs overall will depend to a large extent on how we can strengthen the prospects of local economic development and improve the living and working conditions of small towns and cities which, in turn, depend on access to clean water and improved sanitation. This publication has a pivotal role to play in global and local thinking on service provision, and a critical contribution to the road map to meeting the MDGs
