In this report, WaterAid summarise the findings and recommendations of recent research into the barriers to accessing climate finance for sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene services in Madagascar. This is part of the WaterAid Climate Finance Initiative, which aims to identify the changes needed to ensure that a share of climate finance is spent on WASH resilience.
This included field research and interviews in Madagascar, Mozambique and Timor-Leste. WaterAid are working in Madagascar with partners across government, civil society, international and community organisations and the private sector to translate these findings into action. The aim of the work is to increase decision-makers’ recognition of sanitation and hygiene as a vital building block in adapting to climate change and increase communities’ resilience.
