DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-59]

DESCRIPTION

Peri-urban low-income areas and small scale services are often out of the market. In addition, in some cases governments cannot reach dispersed rural communities. Grouping or re-locating rural communities and adopting new institutional arrangements are WASH strategies often implemented in these contexts, along with adapted technology and the required investment. Microfinance through local and rural banks, lending associations or cooperatives and public revolving funds have gained experience in recent years. The Session aims to identify strategies to provide a sustainable access to financial resources to deliver water and sanitation services both in low-income peri-urban areas and in dispersed small scale communities.
