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.

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.

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.

Financing On-Site Sanitation for the Poor.
World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP). 2010 - This research seeks to identify the best-performing approaches and the relevant factors and issues to consider in designing a sanitation financing strategy. The report offers guidance to sector professionals developing on-site sanitation projects and programs, which play a leading role in providing access to sanitation. The study compares alternative financing approaches based on a set of common indicators, including in terms of the effectiveness in the use of public funds and targeting. The report also shows that households are key investors in on-site sanitation, and careful project design and implementation can maximize their involvement, satisfaction, and financial investment. The study covers six cases from Bangladesh, Ecuador, India, Mozambique, Senegal and Vietnam.

Meeting Development Goals in Small Urban Centres - Water and Sanitation in the World's Cities 2006
This is the second UN-HABITAT global report on Water and Sanitation in the World's Cities. 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

Manual on the Right to Water and Sanitation
The Manual on the Right to Water and Sanitation is designed to assist policy makers and practitioners in implementing the right to water and sanitation. This publication, written in non-legal language, addresses the vital need to clarify how human rights can be practically realised in the water and sanitation sector. The Manual recognizes that implementing the right to water and sanitation is not limited to legal recognition or allocation of funds. Rather, it provides the basis for practical reforms in many areas of water supply and sanitation and in water resource management that can help make the water and sanitation sector operate in a manner that is more pro-poor, accountable and inclusive.

Asian Sanitation Data Book 2008: Achieving Sanitation for All
Sanitation has long been an issue that has received little attention due to its complexity. The absence of relevant data has hindered cities and local governments from adopting appropriate policies and strategies to meet the provision of “sanitation for all.” Moreover, technologies that reflect the needs of communities, as well as the communities’ ability and willingness to pay for better sanitation, are limited.

The Sanitation Challenge: Turning Commitment into Reality
World Health Organization (WHO). 2004 - The provision of sanitation is a key development intervention. Despite its importance, achieving real gains in sanitation coverage has been slow. Scaling up and increasing the effectiveness of investments in sanitation need to be accelerated to meet the ambitious targets agreed at Johannesburg. This document summarises the key thinking about how these targets can be met. It suggests actions that can be taken at different levels and by different actors to change the pace of sanitation improvement.
