Huge news emerged from this years World Toilet Day in the form of a global alliance between USAID and Toilet Board Coalition.
“The new Global Development Alliance between USAID and Toilet Board Coalition will pool USAID’s extensive sanitation expertise and global reach with the Toilet Board Coalition’s business expertise and private sector resources to accelerate progress toward SDG 6 by using market-based approaches to identify best practices for sustainable sanitation improvements, and then implementing those interventions at scale.”
USAID put a up a thorough post on their Medium site dictating the current state of sanitation on our planet, the obstacles in the way, and how this new alliance will endeavor to get past them.
