Burkina Faso was unable to generate full funding for its previous national programme to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), falling short by more than a quarter. If the newly designed programmes for water and sanitation are similarly underfunded, the potential funding gap would be an estimated USD 1.1 billion.

This Finance Brief is based on a 2017 IRC working paper with same title by E. Humphreys. It maps the current (public) finance flows and funding gaps for water, sanitation hygiene (WASH) services in Burkina Faso. Allocations per capita for WASH have been decreasing annually since 2011, and the country still relies heavily on external aid. With a business as usual approach the potential funding gap would be an estimated USD 1.1 billion.To achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG6) for water by 2030, the government will need to mobilise more funding from its own revenues and in partnership with external agencies.
