Financial Inclusion Improves Sanitation & Health (FINISH) Mondial is a public-private partnership scaling safe sanitation with an approach that involves the supply and demand side of sanitation. FINISH Mondial was named the 2020 P4G State-of-the-Art Award Partnership of the Year.
This 6-country program actively engages sanitation entrepreneurs, financial institutions, NGOs and governments to generate household and commercial investments toward long-term sanitation and health improvements.
FINISH Mondial is set to become a €440 million sanitation program by 2025. It will create improved health outcomes for 10 million people. FINISH Mondial facilitates improved economic opportunity outcomes by creating the opportunity for sanitation businesses to grow. 2 million toilets creates 20 million working days, equivalent to almost 77,000 full-time working years. These jobs are stable and provide an income which was not present before. This in turn increases household resilience. In the supply chain (raw material fabrication, transport, storage), local businesses are emerging or strengthened. The local availability of employment opportunities and income earning itself reinforces demand. Women are pivotal as they are often generating the demand as sanitation marketeers. Finally, the carbon and nutrients present in human waste will be recycled for safe use as agricultural inputs and/or in renewable energy.
At a systems level, FINISH Mondial measures the progress of outcomes using real-time monitoring, together with local authorities and sanitation marketeers, that provide an up-to-date overview.
