Sanitation and Water for All : how can the financing gap be filled? : a discussion paper

This discussion paper provides a framework to facilitate the country dialogues and preparatory processes leading up to the Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) High-Level Meetings in April 2017, setting out key considerations for countries as they undertake financial planning to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It begins by estimating the costs and benefits associated with the SDG targets for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). The paper then outlines a range of proposals for using existing financial flows more effectively, including improving the efficiency of existing funding sources (tariffs, taxes, transfers), and mobilising domestic private finance—a largely untapped financial resource to the sector.

Abstract

This discussion paper provides a framework to facilitate the country dialogues and preparatory processes leading up to the Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) High-Level Meetings in April 2017, setting out key considerations for countries as they undertake financial planning to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It begins by estimating the costs and benefits associated with the SDG targets for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). The paper then outlines a range of proposals for using existing financial flows more effectively, including improving the efficiency of existing funding sources (tariffs, taxes, transfers), and mobilising domestic private finance—a largely untapped financial resource to the sector.
