The overall aim of the WASH Bottleneck Analysis Tool (BAT) is to increase WASH sector resources and efficiency to achieve more scaled‐up, sustainable and equitable outcomes. In this report, the methodology is summarized and the outcomes of the WASH BAT analysis are presented as follows: the conduct of the methodology as used in Madagascar is set out; the key enabling factors within the Madagascan WASH sector, as identified in the WASH BAT process, are highlighted; then the bottlenecks are identified; and, the activities recommended by WASH BAT participants to remove them. The report makes clear that there are many areas, at all levels, of the Madagascar WASH sector that require attention and these can usefully be coalesced into five main axes: co-ordination and planning, sustainability and scaling up, sector finance, private sector, and society & culture. Finally, the recommended next steps are presented. (Link)
