Aquaya’s consulting services are informed by our research and development programs.

Sanitation products: measuring supply and demand

Aquaya designs and administers field studies to evaluate supply chains for sanitation products and to measure consumer demand. Many efforts to improve sanitation services propose market forces for achieving distribution of emerging sanitation products, but demonstrations of commercially viable business models that reach poor consumers are limited. Aquaya is conducting research on and providing valuable data to inform decision-making on sanitation policies.

Evaluating Marketing Strategies for Rural Sanitation Products

In collaboration with the Water and Sanitation Program of the World Bank, Aquaya is developing a randomized controlled trial in rural Kenya that will compare different marketing strategies for plastic latrine slabs and assess their health benefits.

The Market for Rural Sanitation

With support from the Water and Sanitation Program of the World Bank, Aquaya is investigating supply chains for improved latrine slabs in rural Tanzania and measuring consumer willingness-to-pay for different latrine slab products among 1,500 randomly selected households in two districts.
