We are pleased to announce that our five-year strategy (2017-2022) is now available in three languages! This strategy will provide clarity to staff members at the Secretariat and EWP's members about our mission and values, objectives, the direction we will be taking as well as the overall theory of change.
End Water Poverty
A report on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) fails to capture the the true picture of water challenges and the UN must withdraw it, said a global civil society coalition.
The civil society coalition End Water Poverty (EWP) criticised the Secretary-General’s report on progress towards the globally agreed SDGs, stating that it lacks understanding and analysis of goal 6, which aims to ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
