Summary of project activities and outcomes:

The purpose of the SAWAP programme, supported by its twin objectives, was:

  • To promote country and inter-country effort to identify, test, and promote large scale use of innovative solutions to sustainable sanitation, water supply and health, particularly for the poor, to include:
    • on the ground verification of costs and effectiveness;
    • the identification of enabling policy, regulatory and institutional environments; and
    • improving the flow and efficient use of resources.
