Is sanitation a business case?
In 2016 the Toilet Board Coalition ran two Feasibility Studies: One to explore the potential role of mobile and digital applications to drive efficiencies and consumer demand in sanitation business models operating in low-income markets. The other one, to explore the potential role of Sanitation in the Circular Economy.
The two papers present their findings in the form of a thought piece on the topic of "Sanitation in the Circular Economy" and "Digitisation of Sanitation for all" The intention of the two papers is to present a number of business opportunity spaces, where the Toilet Board Coalition believe that value has been left on the table and customer needs unmet, complemented with recommendations which need to be further explored in the decade ahead.
