Drawing on experience implementing market-based sanitation programs in seven countries, this paper describes iDE’s insights into building local capacity to promote sanitation in two different contexts: the increasingly market-oriented planned economy of Vietnam and open market Cambodia. In both countries, iDE leverages an understanding of partner and stakeholder barriers and motivations, applies continuous coaching, and uses a variety of incentives to convert learning into practical action. With an emphasis on creating sustainable, scalable change and adapting to ever-changing market conditions, to date these two programs have facilitated the sale of almost 300,000 improved latrines to rural households.
