Infosheet 1 - Providing a basic level of water and sanitation services that last: cost benchmarks
Updated - Thursday 01 November 2012
Over the past four years WASHCost teams in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Andhra Pradesh (India) and Mozambique have collected, validated and analysed cost and service level information for water, sanitation and hygiene.
This Infosheet provides an overview of the minimum benchmarks for costing sustainable basic services in developing countries. They have been derived from the WASHCost dataset and the best available cost data from other organisations all over the world. They are therefore based on the most comprehensive and comparable data on water costs and service levels available for developing countries in rural and peri-urban areas. The benchmarks are useful for planning, assessing sustainability from a cost perspective and for monitoring value for money.
