Sanitation Financing Partnership Trust Fund

ADB is leveraging the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation's $15 million contribution to finance more than $28 million in non-sewered sanitation and septage management projects across the region in the next five years.

Sanitation Financing Partnership Trust Fund

On 25 July 2013, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation signed a channel financing agreement with ADB to contribute $15 million through a Sanitation Financing Partnership Trust Fund under the trust fund component of the Water Financing Partnership Facility. The fund aims to support identification, testing, and pilot implementation of innovative sanitation solutions – new policies, business models, and technologies – to increase support for non-networked (non-sewered) sanitation and septage management in ADB’s developing member countries.

ADB will administer the fund under its Water Financing Partnership Facility umbrella. The Gates Foundation will invest US$ 15 million into the new Sanitation Financing Partnership Trust Fund, which will leverage more than US$ 28 million in investments from ADB by 2017.
