At our Winter Innovation Summit in January 2017 in Salt Lake City, Sorenson Impact and BORDA e.V. (Bremen Overseas Research & Development Association) announced a partnership launching the Sanitation Impact Finance Initiative. The initiative will mobilize knowledge, stakeholders, and financial resources to identify and scale what works in the WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) sector.
The initiative seeks to leverage private, philanthropic, and multilateral aid commitments to create an international finance vehicle and governance structure designed specifically for opportunities in the WASH sector. Together, Sorenson Impact and BORDA will facilitate innovation in impact investment instruments and policies that can advance sanitation efforts at scale.
