Service provision in sanitation and hygiene involves four main components that must be understood and addressed when designing or implementing a new sanitation project:
– institutions required to implement and sustain improved sanitation and hygiene at scale.
– infrastructure itself (the physical hardware of latrines and sewers);
– promotion of behavior change, both for hygiene, and for household investment in infrastructure; and
– finance required to pay for the infrastructure and promotion
This Sanitation, Hygiene and Wastewater Resource Guide describes sanitation problems and solutions through the above framework, and guides the reader to available resources on these topics.
