Through the Global Sanitation Fund, WSSCC has committed close to $105 million in 13 national sanitation and hygiene programmes. The commitment is yielding results across Africa and Asia and is shared by national partners, WSSCC and GSF donors.
In 2014, the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) supported national efforts in 13 countries to increase access to improved sanitation and adoption of good hygiene behaviours.
During the year, GSF programmes significantly raised the number of people living in open-defecation free (ODF) communities, while also increasing handwashing and use of improved toilets.
These figures show the amount of GSF funds committed and disbursed to date and serve as an indication of the progress of GSF programme rollout at the country level. The pipeline shows financial flows from WSSCC to Executing Agencies (EAs) and on to their Sub-grantees. GSF commitments are the total amount of funds that the GSF has designated within multi-year agreements for country programme implementation, including EA and Country Programme Monitor (CPM) costs.
Funds are disbursed to EAs as required, according to agreed schedules. In-country awards to Sub-grantees is the total amount of funds that EAs have designated to be transferred to Sub-grantees. This amount will be updated periodically according to actual figures reported on during the course of programme implementation. In-country grant disbursements is the total amount of funds already transferred by EAs to Sub-grantees, as reported to the GSF by EAs.
