Why do some sanitation enterprises thrive and others fail? Join us to discuss the viability and sustainability of sanitation enterprises.
The USAID-funded Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Partnerships and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) Project invites you to a webinar where we present guidance for practitioners on the factors impacting the viability and sustainability of sanitation enterprises. Profitable sanitation enterprises are critical to attract and maintain entrepreneurial participation for scaling sanitation markets. However, the factors that result in some enterprises performing better than others, or indeed, why some enterprises fail, are not well understood.
The webinar draws upon a recent WASHPaLS report and case studies that analyzed the financial performance of 66 sanitation enterprises across Cambodia, India, and Nigeria. In the session, we will explore the strategies and tactics used by high profit enterprises to grow sales, reduce costs, manage their product portfolio, boost profits, and enhance their viability. Join us to understand the key concepts, the five drivers impacting viability, programming approaches that can risk sustainability, and recommendations for market-based sanitation program implementers.
