Ide Research

Recent research

New research from Georgetown University estimates how iDE Cambodia increased latrine coverage and decreased diarrhea in project areas under SMSU 1. Ghana explored how we might involve women in the sanitation value chain for long-term sustainability and provide income-generating opportunities for their households and communities. Under the USAID-funded WASHPaLS project, iDE Nepal identified ways to support and sustain women’s engagement as WASH sales agents, sanitation entrepreneurs, and masons.

Scale with quality impact

The goal for iDE’s WASH programs is not just to rack up numbers, but to aim for the greatest possible improvement in people’s lives. We do this by ensuring well-designed, aspirational products lead to satisfied customers who then influence their neighbors to adopt the same practices. We track our progress not only by counting how many sales are made, but also the impact that these products are having in reducing sickness, time spent in household labor, and overall well-being.

Cambodia Learnings

One of the keys to success of any sales transformation project is the receptivity of the leadership. Hands down, iDE Cambodia has been one of the best clients we have ever worked with, which has been central to the performances achieved in the SMSU projects over the last four years.
