Financing WASH Position paper for the SWA Finance Ministers Meeting

Together with IRC, Water.org and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Simavi has developed a position paper on how to finance WASH and reducing inequities.

This position paper is aimed at finance ministers and other participants of the Sanitation and Water for All High-Level Meetings in Washington DC this week. Finance ministers will lead the development of financing strategies on how to achieve the ambitious targets of SDG6.1 and 6.2.

The paper addresses three key issues that are receiving limited attention in the water and sanitation discussions on finance:

  1. The lack of finance for strengthening the enabling environment
  2. The untapped use of micro and blended finance
  3. The inequities in allocation of finance in the sector
