Our Loation

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

The UN is supporting efforts to:

  1. Increase resources and improve skills to abstract, supply and monitor sustainable and safe drinking water to the most vulnerable and marginalized communities
  2. Improve solid, human waste and hygiene management
  • Enhance disaster preparedness for effective response and resilient recovery to water shortages

Women and girls in developing countries face different barriers in terms of access to and utilization of WASH services and have different needs, for example, in most communities, they are responsible for collecting water for drinking washing, cooking, bathing etc. at the household level and thus spend more time doing these activities but have less decision-making power on how this resource is used. Gender-responsive projects and policies can improve the well-being of women and girls and the communities.


Goal: By 2022, individuals, households and communities especially the marginalized and vulnerable groups to have increased access to sustainable safe water and sanitation, and practice appropriate hygiene.
