This study found that household financing accounted for more than half of total expenditure on domestic sanitation in 2008/09; only 18 percent of new construction was subsidized by the government or donors. The sanitation subsector is heavily dependent on donor support, but there is no mechanism in place for coordinating government and donor resources. The cost of building an improved latrine is currently high, making it unaffordable to most low-income households. [authors abstract]
