During this Phase I, the project will focus on three main workstreams: policy, investment and knowledge sharing.
· In the policy workstream, GGGI foresees four outputs (Output 1, 2, 3 and 4): (1) to secure government commitment and endorsement to undertake policy interventions that help to create an enabling environment to attract finance for city-wide inclusive sanitation, (2) to secure endorsement for the implementation plan for one policy intervention by 12 months. GGGI will continue to support implementation or adoption in the 24 months, (3) to incorporate/embed sanitation in national plans/strategies for climate change, green growth and urban planning, and 4) to develop municipal green growth plans/strategies for each of the municipalities where the sanitation service is selected.
· In the project workstream, GGGI foresees one output (Output 5): (5) two investment projects for city-wide inclusive sanitation in the target cities, Kolda and Kaolack, for which investment commitment has been secured.
· In the knowledge-sharing workstream, GGGI foresees two outputs (Output 6 &7): (6) a strategy developed to mainstream CWIS in other GGGI partner countries based on lessons learnt and (7) to develop sanitation-specific metrics that allow for building a strong business case for sanitation
