Funding for clean water

Funding for clean water.
In spite of considerable progress in recent years, many people still lack access to essential services including safe water supply and sanitation.
To improve matters, governments need funding.
Women across Asia, Africa and Latin America share their fate.
Many countries, however, lack funding for improving their water infrastructure.
Typically, WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) programmes are co-funded by various partners, including national governments, service providers, non-governmental organisations, international donor institutions and private households.
It includes data from 75 countries and 25 international agencies.
In some countries (Pakistan and Peru for example), the national budget contributes the largest share to WASH expenditure.
In 2015, 319 million people in sub-Saharan Africa lacked access to improved drinking-water sources.
In spite of this, “aid commitments to the region have declined”, the GLAAS report points out.
