Water

In Sanitation for all – but not for another 300 years , global health policy journalist Sarah Bosley writes about UNICEF’s and Unite for Children’s latest joint press release (found in the link below), and her recent conversation with Oliver Cumming — health policy officer of Water Aid — who told Bosley that sub-Saharan Africa will reach water/sanitation goals in the 23rd century. She suggests the time-line is unacceptable. She’s right.

UN-Water Global Annual Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS)

UN-Water GLAAS report will be presented at the first annual High Level Meeting of Sanitation and Water for All, hosted by UNICEF on 23 April in Washington, DC

The Global Annual Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) is a UN-Water initiative implemented by the World Health Organization (WHO). The objective of UN-Water GLAAS is to provide policy makers at all levels with a reliable, easily accessible, comprehensive and global analysis of the evidence to make informed decisions in sanitation and drinking-water.

Between 1997 and 2008, aid commitments for sanitation and water fell from 8% of total development aid to 5%, lower than commitments for health, education, transport, energy and agriculture, according to the latest UN-Water Global Annual Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) report, launched yesterday by UN-Water and the World Health Organization (WHO).
