The Collection of Resources on WASH Financing. SWA, November 2018.
The SWA Secretariat has compiled this Collection with the main resources already available on sector financing. Many of these are linked to the SWA framework, processes and activities.
This Collection is developed and shared in response to an identified gap – the absence of a dedicated venue for resources that sector actors can use to strengthen their planning, implementation and review of progress on SDG financing.
The development and release of this Collection are timely, as the SWA increases its focus on country processes, and the Partnership embarks on the operationalisation of the revised Mutual Accountability Mechanism. Moreover, countries are moving from the stage of needs and gap assessment and towards finding and implementing solutions to fill the gaps.
At the same time, the SWA Partnership has seen some ‘success stories’ in which countries can increase political and financial priority for the WASH sector, while also coming up with innovative solutions for sector financing. These can provide inspiration for context-specific solutions.
