|Abstract: ||This paper describes how the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is working to promote sustainable
sanitation and wastewater treatment in Sri Lanka through the Environmental Cooperation-Asia (ECO-Asia) Program.
A pilot project is being developed in Nuwara Eliya Municipal Council to demonstrate an effective strategy for providing
improved sanitation and addressing key constraints in the sanitation sector. Key constraints include lack of understanding
of options within municipal councils, lack of awareness of pollution impacts within communities, and inadequate financing
strategies and recovery frameworks. The pilot will build on the findings, capabilities and networks of the USAID-funded
Transparency, Accountability and Local Governance (TALG) project in Sri Lanka and the experiences of the USAID-funded
Local Initiatives for Affordable Wastewater Treatment (LINAW) project which is working with seven local government units
in the Philippines. The chief implementing organizations for both projects are Planning and Development Collaborative
Inc. (PADCO) and The Asia Foundation (TAF).|
