This brief shares some of the lessons learned from working on the Rural Sanitation Supply Chains and Finance component of the SSH4A project. This component looks into access to affordable and appropriate sanitation hardware and services. Market-based sanitation solutions have the most potential for scale and sustainability. However, rural sanitation markets are poorly developed and outreach is limited. Building capacity of the various stakeholders involved in this component should improve their performance and move rural sanitation service delivery forward.
