Scaling Up Rural Sanitation is designed as an evidence-based learning project with an explicit goal to test and document new approaches, reflect on challenges, and develop knowledge products to share lessons learned. Testing innovative approaches implies taking risks and learning from successes and failures. This Working Paper draws on evidence from fieldwork and knowledge products developed to support WSP’s learning objectives. WSP has been working with partners and governments to address the following questions: how can governments design and carry out sustainable large-scale rural sanitation programs?; What are the most effective programmatic approaches and what are at-scale service delivery models?; What is the evidence of what works?; and, what factors influence the long-term sustainability of rural sanitation program interventions? In addition, there’s also a drive to learn how to design and operationalize sustainable rural sanitation at scale. It is a work in progress: much has been learned, and more learning is needed. (Link)
