The WSP Global Scaling Up Total Sanitation and Sanitation Marketing Project : The WSP Global Scaling Up Total Sanitation and Sanitation Marketing Project Six month team meeting_ May 22 - 24, 2007 Project Summary and HQ Progress to Date Outline of Presentation : Outline of Presentation Background and context for project Overview of Project Progress to date since the start up workshop Areas where we are behind Concerns Lessons Part of the Gates Foundation WSS&H Learning Initiative : Part of the Gates Foundation WSS&H Learning Initiative Effective in addressing the health, economic and social inequities of those with inadequate WS&S&H; Sustainable in terms of long-term operations and financing; and Scalable to reach hundreds of millions of people in the developing world The Gates Foundation is exploring water, sanitation and hygiene as a new potential area of giving. The goal of the foundation’s learning initiative is to identify interventions with the potential to be: Significance for WSP : Significance for WSP Opportunity to influence the long term program of the Foundation Gates Foundation is now an active member of the WSP Council Opportunity to develop strong credible evidence to support WSP’s advocacy work WSP is able to strengthen its technical capacity Will be one of WSP’s flagship projects for the International Year of Sanitation (IYS) WSP’s Vision of Success with the Gates Foundation : WSP’s Vision of Success with the Gates Foundation WSP will have demonstrated and evaluated promising approaches in four projects in three different regions at substantial scale Have the practical knowledge and conditions to deploy and sustain these approaches on a widespread basis to meet the sanitation MDG targets by 2015 in these four countries and states. WSP will have the experience and tools to work with the global WSS sector to replicate these approaches in other countries where sanitation access is lagging behind. With sufficient funding and a concerted effort, WSP could catalyze sanitation programs in a further 5-15 countries, bringing improved sanitation to a total of 100-300 million people by 2015. Scaling Up Total Sanitation and Sanitation MarketingBasic Information : Scaling Up Total Sanitation and Sanitation MarketingBasic Information Total budget: $11,800,000 Time frame: 3 years Focus countries: India ( HP & MP), Indonesia, Tanzania Global WSP project with common approach (SanMark & CLTS) in all three countries – with adaptations as needed WSP executed/implemented in partnership with Governments and with support from NGOs and consultants as needed. Heavy emphasis on learning - rigorous evaluation of impact (health, social, economic) as well as evaluation of sustainability and replicability Project Timeline – 3 years : Project Timeline – 3 years 6-9 month start up period for detailed planning at both global and country level as well as for carrying out competitive procurement for the proposed evaluation components. This period should also allow for the initial baseline data gathering 2 year implementation phase 3-6 month wrap up phase to include the final evaluation data collection, analysis and write up as well as general documentation and dissemination of results, lessons learned, etc. Slide 8: Global Scaling Up TSSM Project Organization Chart Project Objectives : Project Objectives To create large-scale, sustainable, and effective demand for sanitation and hygiene at the household and community level in the four selected project sites. To create large-scale, sustainable, and effective supply of sanitation and hygiene services and products that are appropriate for and affordable to the poorest families in the four selected project sites. To support the expansion of sanitation coverage in each of the four countries/states. To identify the most practical and effective approaches to scaling up and sustaining sanitation programs so that they can be replicated in other countries and regions to meet the 2015 MDG targets. To strengthen the global WSS sector knowledge and understanding of health, economic, and social impacts of large-scale sustainable sanitation programs To build support among sector partners to replicate the proven approaches in countries where sanitation still lags behind. Slide 10: Design large scale country programs for meeting 2015 MDG targets (4th column) Implement for two years with two year targets (3rd column) Examples of Other Expected Outcomes : Examples of Other Expected Outcomes Improved hygienic habits among households and communities in each of the four regions Open defecation–free communities, as defined by the local governments Strengthened capacity of public institutions, private entrepreneurs, and NGOs to carry out and sustain large-scale sanitation demand-generation and hygiene-promotion programs The number of required front-line staff with skills to work effectively with households and communities has been increased Positive changes made in policy, legal, and regulatory instruments Increased number of household heads who know who to contact to access sanitation goods and service Range of technologies available to, desired by, and affordable to poor households Technical, financial, and commercial capacity of the local private sector sanitation industry that is stimulated and strengthened sufficiently to meet the sanitation demand Detailed cost data for all phases of both a sanitation demand–generation program and the corresponding component to increase supply of sanitation products and services National and global awareness of lessons being learnt (by the team and other stakeholders) and expression of interest in replicating approaches M&E components : M&E components Project implementation monitoring and improvement (inputs) Monitoring and evaluation of expected outcomes and results (outputs) Impact evaluation (outcomes) Evaluation of enabling environment for sustainability and large scale replicability Monitoring of budget Documentation and dissemination of lessons Programmatic Strategy : Programmatic Strategy Improving Supply Sanitation marketing Strengthening local private sector Product development Access to credit Capacity building Increase Demand Total Sanitation Financial incentives for results Sanitation awareness – triggering Strategic communications Hygiene promotion Enabling Environment for Sustainability @ Scale National, State and local government policies Regulations Financing mechanisms Institutional Roles and Responsibilities Institutional and human capacity Key Project Steps : Key Project Steps Project Start Up and HQ and Country levels Build a partnership with key public and private stakeholders Undertake detailed institutional and policy baseline assessments of the enabling environment for scaling up and strengthen as needed Build and leverage existing capacity of NGOs, entrepreneurs, local government, and consultants for implementing the project Support local government and community-based organizations’ efforts to stimulate effective demand on the ground Support the local private sector to expand the supply of sanitation products and services to meet local demand Carry out a robust project monitoring and evaluation program Document learning and disseminate results and lessons learned Project start-up : Project start-up Conceptualize approach for creating large-scale household demand for sanitation and hygiene and an appropriate large-scale supply of sanitation services and products. Design comprehensive country programs to generate demand and increase supply, with assumptions regarding what financial, institutional, and promotion policies and activities would be needed for a large-scale program. Design a monitoring and evaluation program for each of the four countries or states and a series of evaluation activities with other partners that implement sanitation programs to compare lessons on effectiveness, sustainability, and support; Build a partnership with key public and private stakeholders : Build a partnership with key public and private stakeholders Engage policy makers at national, state, and local levels to develop demand-responsive, outcome-focused sanitation policies based on local conditions. Initiate discussions with the local private sector sanitation-related industries to explore a range of partnerships and coalitions to expand the supply of sanitation services and products. Engage with community-based organizations and NGOs to enlist their support in creating demand for sanitation at the household and community levels. Strengthen Enabling Environment : Strengthen Enabling Environment Carry out a baseline assessment of enabling environment for scaling up and sustaining sanitation programs Provide technical assistance and capacity building efforts for building an understanding of the total sanitation and sanitation marketing principles that may be needed for changes in institutional structures, systems, skill profiles, and partnership requirements with agencies outside government structures Build and leverage existing capacity of NGOs, entrepreneurs, local government, and consultants : Build and leverage existing capacity of NGOs, entrepreneurs, local government, and consultants Define roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders Develop appropriate manuals and tools to train master trainers Provide technical assistance to equip project functionaries for proper execution of activities. Support local government and community-based organizations’ efforts to stimulate effective demand on the ground : Support local government and community-based organizations’ efforts to stimulate effective demand on the ground Provide support for developing the appropriate triggers in each cultural and country setting. Specific activities may include designing a sustainable financing strategy( such as a results incentive) designing effective communication strategies, developing information, education, and communication tools to trigger changes, demonstrating technology options, developing appropriate resource guides for interested stakeholders, especially for policy makers, local governments, and private sector agencies, testing outcome monitoring systems that are simple and readily usable, and creating a network of total sanitation practitioners to help in knowledge simulation and to spread the concept to other regions. Support the local private sector to expand the supply of sanitation products and services to meet local demand : Support the local private sector to expand the supply of sanitation products and services to meet local demand Assess availability and capacity of local artisans, small businesses, and supply chains and availability of sanitation and hygiene products and services Analyze market needs, prices, and production capacity of sanitation products and services Assess capacity of public sector and NGOs to implement hygiene behavior programs As needed, support local artisans in the development of new products and services that are more responsive to the expressed demand Develop an accreditation program Provide institutional support as needed: provide molds, construct demonstration toilets, design sanitation marketing campaigns, create sani-marts, develop a catalogue of technology options with bills of quantities, cost estimates, sketches, etc. Carry out a robust project monitoring and evaluation program : Carry out a robust project monitoring and evaluation program Carry out a household baseline assessment with detailed and scientifically tested indicators (to be identified) Carry out rigorous assessments and evaluation of the cost-effectiveness, replicability, and sustainability of the approaches Carry out research on key questions of health, economic, and social impact Do final data analysis and write up findings Document learning and disseminate results and lessons learned : Document learning and disseminate results and lessons learned Participate in country-level workshops with all stakeholders to review experience Document results and lessons learned (WSP Field Notes, etc.) Present papers at international workshops to share experiences Documentation of what works and what does not work will be used as feedback to improve the implementation and design of future interventions. We will fine-tune strategies using studies on cross-country and interregional experiences of implementation of total sanitation and marketing sanitation approaches and cost–benefit comparisons using consistent methodology and documentation. How do we make this into a learning project? : How do we make this into a learning project? Learning is not the same as PR Take time to be reflective? Need analytical framework to capture lessons Need a list of questions we are trying to answer – questions based on framework Answer questions at country level and then drawing global lessons Lessons ? success - admit mistakes Ground truth our lessons with counterparts Annual face-to-face meeting with team – 1st time after 6 months Be open to ad-hoc lessons not in core questions Regular team communication - monthly conference calls Weekly hits and misses (HAMR) Involve WSP communications people early SUCCESS FACTORS FOR THIS PROJECT : SUCCESS FACTORS FOR THIS PROJECT Knowledge-sharing among countries Solid design & implementation and country buy-in to M&E Getting counterpart buy-in – create right incentives Get buy-in from other WSP staff including RTLs and CTLs Effectiveness / efficiency in procurement Ability by key staff to keep focused on project and provide sufficient supervision of staff and monitoring of quality Be able to tell our story well – communications from the very beginning Good management at HQ and countries Oversight of budgets Ability of HQ to support country teams Design and implement a quality assurance process HOW IS THIS PROJECT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER WSP PROJECTS? : HOW IS THIS PROJECT DIFFERENT FROM OTHER WSP PROJECTS? Scale of budget / project ($2-3 million/country) Significant procurement Working across regions - a global project Resources to do rigorous M&E Working in focused geographic area at scale Shorter time framework than usual More operational than usual – WSP in implementation role rather than just technical advisory and advocacy role Very involved donor – more like a partner WSP being held accountable for achieving specific results at the ground level (actual increase in sanitation access) More budget monitoring required than usual More reporting to the donor required than usual Requires extensive project management at country level HQ Accomplishments first six months : HQ Accomplishments first six months The WSP Sr. M&E and, Sr. Social Marketing Specialists have been hired. Comprehensive financial monitoring system set up (over 25 charge codes) TSSM Team Start Up workshop carried out International experts in sanitation related areas identified and put into data base Support provided to country program to initiate baseline assessment of the Enabling Environment for Large Scale sustainable programs Support provided to country program to initiate the assessment of sanitation markets, survey of consumer demand and, development of a strategic marketing communications plan First quarterly report completed and delivered to the Gates Foundation The draft impact evaluation experimental design and management plan have been developed Designed and organized the six month team meeting Orientation visits to India and Indonesia Not Accomplished : Not Accomplished Development of a project learning and communication strategy Monthly conference calls with global team Monitoring system not designed Impact Evaluation baseline not carried out in any of the countries Areas of Concern : Areas of Concern Not clear how improvements in hygiene behaviors other than stopping open defecation will be achieved The senior marketing specialist was not mobilized to WDC until early May (though she did start providing technical support as an STC from Cambodia) The start up phase is taking longer than planned – but the project still remains a 3 year project. Country level staff are sometimes distracted from focusing on this project as a result of other WSP demands Project management experience of project team is limited Budget is still largely notional and needs to be revised based on the design of the IE and the PIPs at each country. Lack of consensus within WSP (and global sector) regarding key terminology and approaches such as CLTS, SanMark, No subsidies for sanitation, hygiene promotion Lessons to Date : Lessons to Date Carrying out a Global project in a decentralized organization is challenging – requires more effective and more inclusive communication with county task managers as well as WSP country team leaders and RTLs Carrying out a learning project in an advocacy organization is challenging – requires willingness and confidence to show that promising approaches may not be as effective at large scale as expected Country ProgramsPROJECT IMPLEMENTATION PLAN : Country ProgramsPROJECT IMPLEMENTATION PLAN Background and rationale Objectives Institutional setting Overall approach technical focus Major activities Milestones and deliverables—project timeline Implementation arrangements Institutional WSP staffing WSP consultants M&E plan Procurement plan Documentation and dissemination Budget
