Study to define the feasibility of a solidarity mechanism allowing access to sanitation to poor populations in Dakar.

The study aims to define the feasibility of implementing a decentralized solidarity mechanism in the city of Dakar for access to sanitation of the poorest populations. To that end, the study undertakes the following actions:

  • Identify the relevant water and sanitation stakeholders for the city of Dakar (public and private) as well as their relationships, existing and potential synergies.
  • Assess existing and potential initiatives at the level of the city of Dakar able to facilitate the provision of water and sanitation services to disadvantaged populations;
  • Identify the prioritised beneficiaries of solidarity mechanisms.
  • Map possible users who need to benefit from present opportunities and determine the types of services to be provided according to each category.
  • Create a common referential of decentralized solidarity processes in order to upscale this experience to other cities in Africa.
  • Identify the types of existing opportunities at the level of the Northern countries regarding funding of such initiatives and ways to seize them.

The study is available in French and English.
