Despite the increasing use of market-based modalities in the humanitarian WASH sector, considerable barriers still exist to using them at scale. With the aim of addressing these barriers, the GWC Markets TWiG commissioned this systematic review of practices and evidence of MBP in the WASH sector.

This study reviewed all available documents which describe practices related to the use of market support or CVA modalities to achieve WASH outcomes and impact in emergencies, as well as documents which describe the evidence of effect of these modalities on WASH outcomes. The results of this review are presented in five separate documents, the present document being a summary of all five:

  • Practices in Market-based Programming in the Water Sub-sector
  • Practices in Market-based Programming in the Sanitation Sub-sector
  • Practices in Market-based Programming in the Hygiene Sub-sector
  • Practices related to the use of Multipurpose Cash for WASH Outcomes
  • Market-based Programming for WASH Evidence Mapping

Each of the above reports focuses on a different aspect of MBP and each addressed to a slightly different audience.
