The Dutch WASH Alliance aims to establish sustainable Water, Sanitation and Hygiene systems that can easily be replicated and scaled up. Within the domain of sanitation, we are creating a functioning WASH market and WASH public sector aiming to increase access to improved sanitation facilities. We support partner organisations that work on demand creation (amongst users); involve WASH entrepreneurs and financial institutions (a working private sector); and support the development of a working public sector. As an Alliance, this is what we refer to as “system change”. To realise system change, WASH Alliance partner WASTE has developed a unique approach called the Diamond Business Approach.

It would be great for someone to do a thesis to bring together all the numbers on this, but it is clear the UDDTs have much to offer. In the following text from my blog, I mention some of the factors involved. ---- inodoroseco.blogspot.com/2014/02/the-dry...weapon-to-fight […]
- Re: Video about two dry sanitation service models by utilities in Peru - by: christoph October 25, 2014Dear Dennis I would like to come back to your question 7 7. There was limited mention of the challenges involved in deploying this seemingly widely suitable design approach (other than the normal cost factors) - as things are never as easy as they appear, perhaps you can explain where the significant challenges are in simply deploying this approach on large […]
