Partnerships for Innovation in Access to Basic Services

Alianzas para la Innovación en Acceso a Servicios Básicos

This document summarizes the key findings from a case study research project carried out for the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) by the Innovation and Technology for Development Centre/Technical University of Madrid (itdUPM). The research took place over a twelve month period between January-December 2013 and included the development of case studies on five partnership initiatives that have adopted innovative ways of delivering basic services to the poor. The initiatives outlined cover a diverse range of services, including clean energy, ecological sanitation, health, water and solid waste management. The final selection for the case studies was based upon criteria such as geographical and thematic diversity; length of time in operation; involvement of nonstate actors; financial, technological and methodological innovations; and results to date (English and Spanish).
