The country's economic growth, around 10% per year, so far has not yet secured a corresponding increase of access to basic services for the poorest segments of the population. In rural areas, over 60% of the population resorts to open defecation, while the rest of the population uses not improved traditional latrines. In small centers (in 2010, 3 million people approx.), less than 10% of the population has access to improved latrines. In urban areas, 50% of the inhabitants approx. does not have basic sanitation. The national strategic plan on water and sanitation has, among its goals, to halve by 2015 the proportion of people without adequate sanitation. Long-term objective is to help achieve universal access to health services (improved latrines or connection to municipal sewer systems) by 2025. Coherently to the current international debate on the best development approaches, the intervention aims at overcoming the usual recourse to grants by choosing a market-based approach to activate sustainable quality services in hygiene-sanitation sector. A social enterprise will therefore be created, which will incubate market-based sustainable and replicable solutions for the sanitation supply chain. ACRA-CCS will coordinate a team of excellent actors with multisectorial technical expertise and different roles in terms of sector and responsibility of intervention. Technical supervision will be ensured by regular meetings between team project and the partners of the action. ACRA-CCS will periodically update the data on project execution by proposing practical solutions where necessary.
