In recent years, much progress has been made in increasing access to drinking-water and sanitation, but still too many people lack access to safe, sustainable water supply and sanitation services. In 2015, the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) estimated that 660 million people still do not have access to improved drinking-water sources, and over 2.4 billion people do not have access to improved sanitation. Investing in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) can have a beneficial impact across a number of issues covered by the SDGs including health and education. This GLAAS report presents an analysis of the most reliable and up-to-date data from 75 countries and 25 external support agencies (ESAs) on the issues related to financing universal WASH access under the SDGs.
