The State of WASH Financing in Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Level Assessment
UNICEF’s Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office (ESARO) engaged Aguaconsult through Oxford Policy Management (OPM) to assess the state of financing of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services in the Eastern and Southern Africa region (ESAR). The assignment aimed to fill a critical knowledge gap in the region by providing a review of and documenting WASH financing issues at both the regional level and through four country reports. Together these reports seek to influence sector-level planning and advocacy activities to support more effective allocation and use of resources by government ministries, donors and other financiers engaged in delivering, operating and maintaining WASH services.
This report focuses on WASH financing for the entire ESAR and follows the development of four country reports (Burundi, Eswatini, Uganda and Zimbabwe). You can download the regional report below and the Burundi country report here.
