It is said that there is still no inclusive sanitation business operating at profit and scale. After all, the sanitation sector is an easy way to highlight the challenges of business at the Base of the Pyramid: lack of consumer awareness and finance, public-private roles, and complex logistics.

New trends, global alliances, contrasting approaches to revenue mobilisation and waste management, links to the SDGs and debates on impact. In partnership with the Toilet Board Coalition, we share blogs from businesses and experts that suggest excitement in the sector, now that the scale of transformation needed has been widely recognised.
