The delivery of sustainable WASH services involves moving beyond sanitation demand creation and building capacity for an integrated approach at scale with quality, whilst ensuring equitable outcomes. The Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All Programme (SSH4A), is essentially a capacity building approach, supporting local government to lead and accelerate progress towards district-wide sanitation coverage with a focus on institutional sustainability and learning. Developed in five countries in Asia by SNV and IRC since 2008, its integrated model is now used by SNV in 15 countries, tailoring solutions in demand creation, sanitation supply chains, behaviour change communication and governance. The process has generated many lessons both within the country contexts and the sector, in particular related to scaling, capacity development and the integration of methodologies, which are described in this paper.
