Life-cycle Costing for Sanitation Services

  1. 1. Supporting water sanitation and hygiene services for life 30 June 2014 Life-cycle Costing for Sanitation Services Nick Dickinson & Catarina Fonseca 2014 WASH Sustainability Forum RAI, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  2. 2. IRC’s vision on financial sustainability To achieve sanitation services for Everyone Forever: - Understand the cost of services - Revenue and expenditure match over time - Ensure a basic level of service for everyone
  3. 3. Steps in tool logic Using a real case example 1. Defining and organising costs components 2. Cost components over time 3. Defining service levels
  4. 4. 1. Defining and organising cost components Overall, which expenditure/costs need to be taken into account for the programme? One-off expenditure AND recurrent expenditure. => Write main components on post its Organise the expenditure per cost component => Stick the post its in the cost pie
  5. 5. Capital expenditure Operational expenditure Capital maintenance expenditure Costs of capital Direct support Indirect support Defining and organising cost components
  6. 6. 2. Cost components over time Per cost component, who has to pay over time? => Write on chart
  7. 7. Time Who? What cost? Who? What cost? What cost? Who? Cost components over time
  8. 8. 3. Defining service levels achieved What is the overall service level achieved in the area of intervention => Answer questions in chart
  9. 9. 1. Majority of families have access to latrine with impermeable slab? Yes No 1a. One of more toilets available in compound? 1b. Separation between faeces and users Yes No Yes No Improved service Basic service Limited service No service 2. Facilities used by all members of the household? Yes Used only by some No or insufficient use Improved service Basic service No service 3. Regular operation and maintenance requires minimal user effort (inc. pit emptying)? Yes Unreliable No maintenance and dirty toilets Improved service Basic service No service 4. Problematic environmental impact? No Yes 4a. Re-use of safe by-products? 4b. High population density? Yes No No Yes Improved service Basic service Limited service No service Level of service achieved
  10. 10. Costs and service levels => Discuss impact of reduction/increase of costs on service levels
  11. 11. The goal of the free online tools The life-cycle costs approach is accessible to everyone − Get started quickly − Improve access to data: expenditure and revenue are hard to share − Easily communicate with stakeholders about life- cycle costs and service levels
  12. 12. Tools to: • Learn about life-cycle costs • Collect and analyse data • Share results
