In Madagascar, community members in the Boney region started to build their own toilets two days after a sanitation demand-creation exercise funded by the GSF was held in May 2012.

At this week’s World Water Week in Stockholm, the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is releasing a report presenting the latest results from the ongoing implementation by national partners of its Global Sanitation Fund (GSF).

As of 30 June 2012, the Global Sanitation Fund supports large-scale sanitation and hygiene work in Cambodia, Ethiopia, India, Madagascar, Malawi, Nepal, Senegal and Uganda. In those countries, 94 GSF sub-grantees – NGOs and community based organizations – have raised awareness of sanitation and hygiene in a number of targeted regions in each country. As a result of this sub-grantee work, the first 752,897 people of a planned 14 million people have access to and are using improved toilets, among other leading indicators of progress.

The Global Sanitation Fund is a pooled global fund established to gather and direct finance to help large numbers of poor people to attain safe sanitation services and adopt good hygiene practices. The report, a follow-up on the first report issued in February 2012, presents the main results in headline form, gives cumulative numerical results in dashboard form, along with descriptions of the various indicators and monitoring methods, and presents the latest news on the respective country programmes.

WSSCC gratefully acknowledges the donors that make the GSF work possible: the Governments of Australia, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
