Abstract

The objective of the UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and DrinkingWater (GLAAS) is to monitor the inputs required to extend and sustain water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) systems and services. This includes the components of the “enabling environment”: documenting government policy and institutional frameworks; the volume, sources and targeting of investment; the sufficiency of human resources; priorities and gaps with respect to external assistance; and the influence of these factors on performance. A secondary goal is to analyse the factors associated with progress, or lack thereof, in order to identify drivers and bottlenecks, to identify knowledge gaps, to assess strengths and weaknesses, to identify challenges, priorities and successes, and to facilitate benchmarking across countries. This third biennial GLAAS report presents data from 94 countries, covering all the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) regions, and from 23 external support agencies (ESAs), representing over 90% of official development assistance (ODA) for sanitation and drinking-water.The objective of the UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and DrinkingWater (GLAAS) is to monitor the inputs required to extend and sustain water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) systems and services.
