The U.S. Agency for International Development and LIXIL, a global housing and sanitation products multinational company, on Tuesday, launched the Partnership for Better Living to expand access to affordable sanitation and hygiene solutions for the underserved in up to 11 countries across sub-Saharan Africa and Asia by 2026. USAID seeks to accelerate the pace of change by growing sustainable sanitation markets that meet the needs of low income households and vulnerable groups.
Building on the Memorandum of Understanding the two organizations signed in October 2020, USAID plans to award up to $10 million over five years to support LIXIL’s goals of reaching 100 million people with basic sanitation and hygiene solutions, improving supply chains, and harnessing innovation. LIXIL will also contribute its own resources to advance the public-private partnership’s objectives. Future activities will create business opportunities for local small and medium-sized enterprises, with a focus on women entrepreneurs and inclusive markets.
