In Bangladesh context at present Bangladesh has been covered 98% latrine but JMB report indicate 56% .This different picture is problem in WASH sector . LGI is now no allocation for sanitation . NGIs is prefer other development sector and this why LGIs is showing less importance here .As a CSO we always give priority is to work with LGIs . Here we can share S African Learning .

Thank you for your comment Md Karim. The disparity in latrine coverage figures in Bangladesh you mention is significant and, if I understand you correctly, the higher figure reported by the government is leading to lower investment priorisation. CSOs have an important role to work with local government in monitoring WASH coverage and function and highlighting financing gaps. If you would like to read more about M&E and financing, I recommend the learning briefs found here:
Thank you for your input. Regards, Bronwyn, CS WASH Fund Knowledge and Learning Manager
