The WSSCC Global Sanitation Fund – a pooled fund to promote sustainable improvements in sanitation and hygiene.
The Global Sanitation Fund is a pooled fund established to direct finance to help large numbers of poor people to attain safe sanitation services and adopt good hygiene practices. It is typically the existing WSSCC National WASH Coalition or other WSSCC partners that request for the country to be considered for funding from the GSF. These parties engage with the National Government to select sector stakeholders to form the basis of a Coordinating Mechanism. The Coordinating Mechanism makes certain that the work supported by the Global Sanitation Fund is consistent with national policies and the activities of the National WASH Coalitions that undertake professional networking, knowledge management, advocacy and communications work. They continue to provide strategic oversight to the programmes.
