Improved access to water, sanitation and hygiene for all

The WASH Alliance International, consisting of Simavi (lead), Amref, Akvo, RAIN, WASTE, IRC, Wetlands, PRACTICA Foundation and RUAF, together with Plan Netherlands and SNV - has been granted € 59 million by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs for their jointly developed Netherlands WASH SDG Programme. This programme, which will be implemented in seven countries: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Nepal, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia, will continue to improve access to and use of sanitation plus hygiene behaviour in a sustainable way for at least 2 million people, and will also seek to deliver access to and use of safe drinking water for at least 450,000 people in the coming five years. The WASH Sustainable Development Goals Consortium will ensure that facilities and services are sustainable, climate resilient, gender sensitive and socially inclusive.
