Event Details

In this webinar, FSMA spotlights the presentation The Role of Technical Assistance in Financing and Scaling up Innovative Sanitation Technologies, by Dr. Barbara Kazimbaya-Senkwe:

Several African countries including Senegal and Kenya are among those where the application of new technologies that shift fecal matter from waste to a resource is slowly taking root. Raising finance to expand and bring these technologies to scale is difficult and requires technical assistance that can facilitate linkages amongst several actors from the public and private sector. Using USAID's WASH-FIN experience in Kenya and Senegal, this session shares the experience of providing such technical assistance, highlighting the opportunities and challenges, and recommending ways in which such technical assistance could play an even bigger role.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A discussion.


The FSMA Spotlights webinar series aims to highlight key aspects and discussions around FSM and the sanitation service chain.
