Water and Sanitation
Water is essential for human life, and improved access to safe water supplies and adequate sanitation are crucial for improving health and hygiene in developing countries. It is also a key driver of economic and social development.
Water is essential for human life, and improved access to safe water supplies and adequate sanitation are crucial for improving health and hygiene in developing countries. It is also a key driver of economic and social development. The challenges facing the sector are also some of the most extreme with, for instance, global droughts threatening the livelihoods of millions of people.
Water and sanitation are closely linked to development of several other sectors, and improving these basic services lays a foundation for overall improvement of quality of life, gender equality, reduction of poverty and sustainable development. The projects today are not only technical but include an important element of capacity development in financing and management skills.
