2 3 Pillars of Sustainable Sanitation Promotions - driving demand through targeted campaignsMaximum sustainability – when all three occur togetherEnabling Environment – Capacity building for local governmentsInfrastructure – Scaling up supply and delivery chains
3 Promotions -Delivering on Key Promises Gather evidence through surveys and focus group discussions. Determine what would motivate people to invest in sanitation.Link key promises with motivators. If I invest in sanitation: “I will realize this result”. Delivering on promises is key to sustainability.
4 Infrastructure: Scaling Up Sanitation – The Power of Markets Empowering business owners to scale up operations to meet increased demand through CLTS and other sanitation promotion initiatives.Programs that provide microfinance for tooling, training in business management, marketing and customer relations can be especially effective.
5 Rapid Technical Assessments Deploy plumbers and engineers to investigate existing infrastructure. Determine what is working, what could be working better.Identify ways of reducing costs by modifying procedures, processes, and features. Look at cost saving opportunities with products, installation, operation and simplifying the purchase process.
6 Enabling Environment – Driving Demand Local sanitation ordinances establish procedures, policies and institutional arrangements. They provide guidance and direction for the regulated community.Economic incentives. Local ordinances that specify penalties for non-compliance, when enforced, help drive the demand for sanitation services.
