Benefit-cost Analysis of Expanding Fresh Life Services in Kisumu, Kenya.
Sanergy is expanding its Fresh Life container-based sanitation service in low-income areas (LIAs) of Kisumu, Kenya. The Aquaya Institute conducted a benefit-cost analysis of Fresh Life’s increased market penetration, including a wide range of potential benefits for households, sanitation duty bearers, and the healthcare sector.
Key Drivers of Benefits & Costs
A positive sanitation externality occurs when community health improves as a result of individual household sanitation access. This analysis assumes that once 75% of households have improved sanitation access, all households, inclusive of those with unimproved or no sanitation access, experience increased disease reduction. Given the projected rate of Fresh Life toilet adoption, the externality is realized in Year 7.
