    The Economic Impacts of Inadequate Sanitation in India 

    An event with the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP)

    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. CSIS hosted a discussion with the report authors on the implications of their research and plans for future work of the Economics of Sanitation Initiative.
