WSUP has been working with the water and sanitation utility in Lusaka to support a new pit-emptying service targeted at low-income customers. This initial work, funded in part by SFF, has helped shape the utility’s scale-up plans for faecal sludge management services under the city’s new multi-million-dollar investment programme. This blog reflects on lessons learned, and on how this experience links with the Foundation’s approach to funding.
WSUP has been investigating how redistributive taxation and surcharges could be used to finance sanitation for low-income customers. This guest blog from Guy Norman discusses WSUP’s research and next steps.
