About Innovations for Poverty Action:
Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) is an international non-profit research organization dedicated to discovering and promoting effective solutions to global poverty problems. IPA works in partnership with development partners and academic researchers to create and evaluate approaches potential solutions to poverty problems using randomized evaluations in the fields of health, education, microfinance, governance and agriculture.
We also mobilize and support these decision makers to use these solutions to build better programs and policies at scale.
About the Project:
As part of the Water Services Trust Fund’s mission to provide water and sanitation services to the poor, the WSTF partnered with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to scale-up their services for the urban informal settlement populations across Kenya.
Under this partnership, the WSTF with funding from the Gates Foundation, provided subsidies to landlords living in urban areas across the country to construct toilets. IPA has since been contracted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to independently verify specific indicators related to the WSTF project. A representative sample of all households that have received a toilet will be visited to verify these indicators.
