This report is based on fieldwork and research funded by the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) in India, Indonesia, and Tanzania. The Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) has provided technical assistance to support government efforts to scale up rural sanitation since 2007 through Scaling Up Rural Sanitation, Total Sanitation and Sanitation Marketing (TSSM). One of the central objectives of this initiative is to learn how to improve rural sanitation at a scale sufficient to meet the 2015 Millennium Development Goal for sanitation, and to then use the lessons learned to help replicate policy, programmatic, and service delivery approaches in other countries. The purpose of this document is to synthesize key findings, conclusions, and recommendations from the country specific end line assessment reports to provide guidance and insight to other countries seeking to create large-scale sustainable rural development programs. One of the central hypotheses of TSSM was that a supportive enabling environment was an essential element of large-scale rural sanitation programs. This report offers country-level findings, overall conclusions from the 2010 enabling environment (EE) end line assessments, and specific conclusions by dimensions. Recommendations for sequencing of EE Interventions and for te role of WSP and other development partners are also available. (Link)
