WSUP is a non-profit partnership between the private sector, NGOs and research institutions focused on solving the global problem of inadequate water and sanitation in low-income urban communities.
WSUP brings lasting solutions to low-income areas by working in partnership with service providers, including water utilities, local authorities and businesses, and the communities they serve.
WSUP strengthens the capacity of service providers to deliver sustainable city-wide water and sanitation services, promote good hygiene and raise the environmental standards of low-income communities.
From incorporation in 2005, WSUP has grown rapidly to a £10â€/12m organisation and has plans for further expansion over the next five years. The organisation is now at a pivotal stage in its growth.
It presently operates six well-developed, respected country programmes in Africa and Asia (Bangladesh, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Zambia) to strengthen public and private sector service providers to improve the delivery of affordable services to low income consumers WSUP has recently expanded its portfolio of operations to include the building and strengthening of private sector provision in urban water and sanitation services and the sale of consulting services on all aspects of low income urban WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) to disseminate learning and increase impact. All of these operations are supported by research, communications, funding and finance and resources teams.

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS, Final Evaluation of the Sanitation Services Delivery Project (2014-2019)
Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) is a not-for-profit company which helps to transform cities to benefit the millions who lack access to water and sanitation.
WSUP works side-by-side with local providers, strengthening the organisations that have been tasked to deliver city-wide services. We are a trusted partner to utilities, municipalities and the private sector, supporting them to develop services, build infrastructure and attract funding that will help them reach low-income urban communities (LIUCs).
Together with PSI and PATH, WSUP is implementing a holistic approach to citywide sanitation project to improve sanitation outcomes by developing and testing scalable business models that engage private sector service providers under USAID’s Sanitation Service Delivery Programme (SSD).
SSD is creating linkages with other value chain players required for toilet input supplies and construction. The project is taking a holistic approach to improving the enabling environment for sanitation services – for example improving the capacity of the Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) and other key staff from the local governments, supporting the improved enforcement of regulations requiring households to build toilets, supporting MFIs to refine their microfinance loan products and artisans and toilet suppliers to build their businesses. The project also supports a variety of financing options for toilets that are suitable for a range of income groups.
To undertake an evaluation of the project to assess the effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of the sanitation programme and the achievement of the objective components.
