Dr. Jay Graham/GWU – How did wealthy countries achieve universal water and sanitation coverage? (Vlog#1)

Published on Feb 14, 2016

This vlog was inspired by an article I read yesterday: “Universal Water and Sanitation: How Did the Rich Countries Do It?”.

It’s a nice article, which I tried to summarize in 2 minutes…you can check out the full article here: http://www.publicfinanceforwash.com/r…

  1. Great idea to do a vlog. And content was very interesting and thought provoking.

  2. Hi Jay, many thanks for your vlog and the article. I totally agree with you, but the only question I have is the assumption that market-based solutions are only about private sector market actors. It depends upon what definition you choose to use, but I understand a market to be “a system of exchange between two or more actors. The exchange can be for goods or services, or for money and can take place in a physical ‘marketplace’ or virtually.” This may include public as well as private sector market actors. You may find it interesting to listen to my colleague’s (Katie Whitehouse) podcast on “How can market based responses help NGOs work in emergencies? ”

This is focused on humanitarian responses in emergencies, but there are many similarities/synergies with development programming. best regards, Jonathan – Senior Urban WASH Programme Advisor – Global Humanitarian Team – Oxfam
