WASH and Financial Inclusion: A Set of Indicators to Guide the Activities of Impact Investors in the WASH Sector
The European Microfinance Platform (e-MFP) and Aqua for All are pleased to share the result of an e-MFP WASH Action Group (AG) project aiming to identify a set of priority indicators to be used by impact investors when evaluating their potential and existing WASH investments. This work complements the study on WASH and Financial Inclusion findings published in September 2022 by the AG and goes one step further in the support of impact investors and other stakeholders looking to actively participate in the water and sanitation sector.
This report was prepared by Jeroen Trimpe Burger from Rebel who consulted several e-MFP members, including investors such as Incofin, Oikocredit and Triple Jump, and other key stakeholders in the WASH sector. The framework presented is intended to be a starting point that can be gradually expanded as more investors become engaged in the sector and increasingly aware of the benefits of aligning data collection and analysis efforts.
As next steps in this work, the AG will look into conducting a pilot with impact investors willing to test the set of selected indicators. If you are interested in knowing more about the work and activities of the WASH AG, please contact Joana Afonso (email@example.com).
