In this concise document (9 pages) the authors make a case of mixed funding sources for sanitation. They share their experience and ideas on how private sector funds can be attracted and used, and how to increase the willingness to pay of users. The ideas are supported with cases from Ethiopia, Kenya and India.

This is not only a must read for people in the WASH sector, but also for all working on (small scale) projects in other parts of the water sector.
