Project Description

According to the bank document, the Sanitation Financing Partnership Trust Fund (SFPF) under the Water Financing Partnership Facility (WFPF), established in 2013 between the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) through a Channel Financing Agreement , was designed to promote investments in fecal sludge management (FSM) focusing on non-networked sanitation and septage management, piloting technologies, policies and regulatory framework and project delivery mechanisms.

Much traction has been gained in the last 6 years and to date, support has been provided to pilot testing of innovations in investment projects, development of policies, standards and regulations, capacity building, and knowledge-sharing initiatives. 

The project outputs are expected as providing support for country/citywide inclusive sanitation projects, developing guidelines for citywide inclusive sanitation projects and improving citywide inclusive sanitation-related capacity and awareness in developing member countries.
