118. Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion: Programming Guidance – Section Three: Creating the Enabling Environment

Changing the enabling environment so that investments in sanitation and hygiene promotion are consistently more effecting, is a challenging task. In many countries or regions, the sort of high-level changes which are required (in policies, financial instruments, organizational arrangement and so on) may require changes to legal and regulatory instruments. This section discusses the sorts of changes which might be needed in the long run to secure consistent and effective sanitation and hygiene promotion programmes. With five chapters, it will present changes in policies that may be needed, how to make decisions about allocating resources strategically, what is needed to design and roll out financial instruments which can promote effective sanitation and hygiene promotion, appropriate arrangements for delivering services including restructuring organisations, and the requirements for monitoring and evaluating sanitation and hygiene promotion at the programmatic level. This section should be read selectively by people who are involved in making long-term changes to the way sanitation and hygiene promotion are carried out. Whenever possible, examples from the field are presented. (Link)
