Make every second count - the time is now.
2016 has been an incredible year for campaigning and advocacy on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). We saw the beginning of the new Sustainable Development Goals, which set our future development agenda until 2030. Now is a critical time as governments develop their national implementation plans - the country road maps on how to achieve this ambitious agenda over the next 14 years.
We have come far, but still have a long way to go.
A consortium of key players in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector including WaterAid, WASH United, together with partner organisations the Institute for Sustainable Futures, End Water Poverty, UNICEF and the Rural Water Supply Network, have launched new guidance for local government officials in developing countries, to show how they can become real heroes in helping people realise their rights to safe drinking water and sanitation.
