Addressing inequalities and accelerating SDGs

Green city-wide sanitation

Global green growth institute

The project addresses both the policy and planning elements needed to attract climate and private investment as well as developing viable service models that ensure an affordable service for all. In Nepal and Senegal the policy and planning elements have included: 1) The incorporation of sanitation into the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC). The focus has been to include targets for fecal sludge management investments that are not commonly included despite considerable benefits in terms of adaptation and mitigation. 2) Elements to increase the ease of doing business for the sanitation sector including fiscal measures. 3) Capacity development and a City-Wide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) type strategy development inclusive of climate measures and circular economy approaches developed jointly with local stakeholders.
