SOIL has announced its groundbreaking partnership with IDB Lab’s Outcomes for Change Fund (OCF) in Haiti – the first large-scale Outcomes Fund to be implemented in a fragile country context and small island developing state.
Breakthrough for climate resilient sanitation at COP28 with explicit mention in the Global Goal on Adaptation
Thanks to the collective efforts of WASH partners, the importance of climate-resilient sanitation has been recognised in high-level efforts to address the climate crisis, with an explicit mention in the Global Goal on Adaptation (GGA) water thematic target.
This Human Rights Day, read a transcript of a presentation given by Sasha Kramer, CEO of Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL) at the 1st IWA NSS conference in October, in which she shared how her thinking has evolved on the role of CBS in addressing basic service provision and long-term systems change.
The CBSA and other members of the Climate Resilient Sanitation Coalition call for sanitation as a climate solution on World Toilet Day 2023.
The importance of aspiration, decent housing and public subsidy – three takeaways from the 1st IWA NSS conference
CBSA and its members featured prominently throughout this conference where we had numerous interesting and thought-provoking discussions. Read about the three key issues that gave us pause for thought.
The surprising adaptation and mitigation benefits of actively managing sanitation: a win-win for unlocking climate finance
The climate crisis demands urgent action across all sectors to reduce emissions and adapt to changing climatic conditions and sanitation is no exception. While there are no quick fixes, emerging research shows that actively managed services such as container-based sanitation benefit both adaptation and mitigation and should have the potential to secure valuable – and so far, elusive – sources of climate finance.

Reflections and key messages from a ‘Flush with Success’, a roundtable co-hosted by Cranfield School of Management, Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor and the CBSA looking at how small and medium-sized social enterprises (SMSE) can help to meet enormous global sanitation challenges.
In 2022, the CBSA worked with the carbon finance consultancy South Pole on a feasibility study to understand whether carbon credits could become a viable income stream for sanitation providers and help to reduce the funding gap. Our new briefing paper summarises the study’s findings, which found that carbon credits can generate revenue for actively managed sanitation but that several obstacles hinder the full potential.
