Regional : Accelerating Sanitation for All in Asia and the Pacific

Sovereign Project | 53266-001

The Sanitation Financing Partnership Trust Fund (SFPF) under the Water Financing Partnership Facility (WFPF), established in 2013 between the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) through a Channel Financing Agreement , was designed to promote investments in fecal sludge management (FSM) focusing on non-networked sanitation and septage management, piloting technologies, policies and regulatory framework and project delivery mechanisms. Much traction has been gained in the last 6 years and to date, support has been provided to pilot testing of innovations in investment projects, development of policies, standards and regulations, capacity building, and knowledge sharing initiatives. Prior to the establishment of the SFPF, ADB's investment in non-networked sanitation and septage management was very low at $3.8 million. Since 2014 SFPF has helped leverage a total of $133.7 million investment in non-networked sanitation, far exceeding the target of $75 million by 2020.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Asian wide, around 2 billion people still lack access to basic sanitation, posing a huge challenge to SDG 6.2. In November 2018, the ADB, as part of its continued partnership with BMGF, committed to promote Countrywide/Citywide/Countywide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) in its operations to support the and support the creation of a global platform among development partners on 'Sanitation for All from NOW (SDG6.2) . Utilizing such a platform, development partners would champion CWIS and Whole Sanitation Business Chain approaches to (i) plan and deliver services for everybody to benefit from good quality and sustainable sanitation services, (ii) safely manage human waste along the whole sanitation service chain, (iii) prioritize the unserved, particularly those in low-income and vulnerable communities, (iv) consider effective resource recovery and re-use, and (v) embrace a diversity of technical solutions for adaptive, mixed, and incremental approaches and combine non-sewered sanitation (NSS) including fecal sludge management (FSM), and sewered solutions.

The proposed KSTA will accelerate CWIS by supporting upstream work covering:

Regulatory frameworks to support sewered and non-sewered sanitation options

Institutional arrangements to delineate responsibilities and ensure ownership and leadership of the government;

Regulations and standards that address current and emerging trends, and enforcement of the same, e.g. making fecal sludge desludging mandatory;

Strengthening human capital and developing capacity for holistic planning, design, and implementation of sanitation improvements as well as enforcement regulations;

Optimal technical designs utilizing technology, resource recovery, IT applications;

Promoting private sector participation in operation and maintenance as sub-contractors; and

Increasing demand for proper sanitation services through strategic communication campaigns.

Impact

Access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene achieved for all, and open defecation eliminated by 2030, with special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations (Sustainable Development Goal 6.2)
