Study on Leverage of WASH Alliance International program in Bangladesh

August 22, 2022

WASH Alliance International (WAI) started its program in Bangladesh in 2011. This study calculated the amount of investment by other actors (i.e., households, the private sector, partners from non-development funding sources, and local government institutions) during 2016 that can be attributed directly to the program, and contributed to scale-up (leverage). It also analyzed the reasons for the key actors to invest in WASH and determined the catalytic effect of the program during 2011-2016 in creating additional WASH results.

Stichting Simavi commissioned, and a four (4) member team of Harmony conducted the study during March and April 2017. The team used Desk Research, Survey, FGD, In-depth Interview, Consultation, and Observation as data collection methods. The study location covered two (2) municipalities, and thirty-three (33) unions under six (6) districts, i.e., Bagerhat, Barguna, Laxmipur, Sirajganj, Satkhira, and Patuakhali.
