Water Action Month

14 Days Until Water Action Month: Why should you get involved, and how can you best prepare?

Water: one of our planet’s most finite resources, the most vital element for survival of life on Earth, and undeniably at the core of global development towards a healthier and more sustainable planet. Fortunately for the world, End Water Poverty members are hard at work towards achieving our common goal of ending the water and sanitation crisis for all. As members our 250-organisation-strong global civil society coalition, your time and dedication culminates each year in Water Action Month (WAM), with the 2017 WAM only 14 days away.

Over one year in: how civil society has used our combined voice to influence policy change

In my ten years of campaigning and advocating for water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), we have never had such a unique political opportunity for change as we have had this year at the start of Agenda 2030; the start of the new development goals for the next 15 years. In the past few months, my colleagues and I at the End Water Poverty secretariat have been criss-crossing Africa, Europe, South Asia and Latin America to tap into the enthusiasm of our members at the beginning of this ambitious path to achieve a universally better future for all.

Thank you to all our members - you've been amazing!

 

 

Thank you - we couldn't have done it without you. Congratulations to all our members on your fantastic work! 

It's been a busy past few months for us here at End Water Poverty. March was an incredible month of action calling for change around the world - we thank all our amazing supporters for making Water Action Month such a success!

 

This World Water Day, let’s WASH out Typhoid!

Blog post was written by End Water Poverty member, Coalition Against Typhoid, and originally posted on their website on World Water Day: 22 March 2016.

Each year, typhoid kills an estimated 200,000 people, most of whom are children. The burden of typhoid is greatest among those living in poverty throughout Asia and Africa, but the disease has now become a serious threat in destabilized nations in the Middle East.
