  • This study aims to generate evidence on the costs and benefits of sanitation improvements in different contexts in the Philippines. Conducted with a view towards identifying the most economically efficient options under different conditions, it aims to contribute to the decision making processes of government, donor agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other institutions. The study quantifies the costs and benefits associated with various sanitation options in different study sites. The benefits include the impacts on health, water sources and treatment, access time, and the reuse of human excreta. The costs include capital or investment costs and the recurrent costs associated with various sanitation options. The costs and benefits of the sanitation options were synthesized using standard indicators of economic efficiency. These indicators included the benefit-cost ratio, cost-effectiveness ratio, net present value, internal rate of the return, and payback period of sanitation options. Cost-effectiveness ratios - cost per disability life year averted, cost per disease case averted, cost per death averted - are also calculated and presented in this report.
