Building capacity and financing sanitation in Africa

Almost $16 billion is needed annually for Africa in capital costs to reach SDG 6.2 by 2030, divided equally between rural and urban.  When operation and maintenance costs are included this resource requirement more than doubles.  Overall cost requirements for achieving and sustaining universal sanitation and hygiene coverage are significantly greater than current resources available.  However, even if this funding barrier was removed, the capacities to implement are still lacking.
