A. The project has a significant impact on the sanitation and hygiene situation and day-to-day living standards of residents in and visitors to the project area. The effective use of public toilets in busy areas of the cities will result in cleaner environments.
B. Because of strongly reduced dumping of waste water and clean water after treatment, the incidences of water-borne and water-related diseases can be expected to decrease and this will in turn lead to a reduction in morbidity and mortality.
C. The physical environment where previously dumping took place, will improve considerably with all positive consequences on health, but also social and economic activities. This is because of the improved liquid waste management and compliance to regulations.
D. The project will have an impact on poverty alleviation. In economic terms, direct jobs will be created in the transport sector, in the construction, operation and management of sanitation facilities, the waste water treatment plants and the compost making facility. Moreover in agriculture, more and/or better jobs will be created because of the availability of a good fertilizer.
E. Within the project there is a focus on the policy level. The target is to create a well-functioning environment where the required institutional-, legal- licensing- and regulatory frameworks are all in place. The regulatory framework is needed for the licensing of sanitation entrepreneurs who work in the liquid waste management. This focus on policy level offers future new comers to the sanitation sector a clear insight of what is needed to enter the market.
F. Behavioural change is visible in people using public toilets and taking more care of their immediate environment.
Supporting the local authorities and private sector will ensure that achievements are sustained and build on in the longer term.
