Fostering sustainable and inclusive WASH marketing systems with informal settlements of the Pacific Fostering sustainable and inclusive WASH marketing systems with informal settlements of the Pacific
The Sustainable Development Goals set the challenge to ensure all people have sustained use of safe water and sanitation and practice safe hygiene (WASH), to enable everyone to derive the associated health and wellbeing benefits. Increasingly, market-based approaches are being employed to generate demand for water and sanitation (WASH) services among impoverished communities, but these market approaches have been met with variable success across the globe. We undertook multidisciplinary and participatory action research to examine the possibility of WASH marketing systems as an approach to achieve WASH outcomes for Melanesian communities of the Pacific, in particular informal urban or peri-urban communities. We developed a WASH Marketing Exchange systems Framework, which describes the nature of WASH exchanges that should be leveraged in informal settlements, and the requirements of the enabling environment to foster and support these WASH exchanges.
