In December, WSP reported that the economic impacts of inadequate sanitation in India amount to $53.8 billion a year, or over 6% of the nation's 2006 GDP. The findings were released in the report "Economic Impacts of Inadequate Sanitation in India," which calculated a comprehensive range of economic losses, including those related to health care, tourism, and productivity. Please join us for a discussion with the report authors on the implications of their research and plans for future work of the Economics of Sanitation Initiative.To read WSP's report, please click here.
