It is with great pleasure that we have been informed that WSUP has been awarded a grant of $2.5m by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help develop the next stage of the ‘Reinvent the Toilet Challenge'. This grant will support a four year program aimed at using new sanitation technologies to activate and expand the sanitation market in three cities in Africa and South Asia.
Borealis and Borouge are partner of WSUP since they launched the Water for the World programme. WSUP is a partnership between the private sector, civil society and academia which brings together skills and expertise from three sectors. The private sector, e.g. companies like Borealis and Borouge, contribute with technical expertise such as
- contract design
- non-revenue water reduction
- financial modelling and business planning
- effective branding and marketing used in the promotion of sanitation and hygiene
In addition, as a partner of WSUP, Borealis and Borouge are also member of the WSUP Board. The Board meets quarterly and provides strategic direction, defining WSUP's mission, ensuring effective strategic planning and maintaining WSUP's legal, ethical and financial integrity and accountability.
