UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS): The Challenge of Extending and Sustaining Services

Jan 01, 2012
  • Description
  • Key findings

UN-Water GLAAS reports on the capacity of countries to make progress towards the MDG water and sanitation target and on the effectiveness of external support agencies to facilitate this process. This 2012 edition notes that resources are neither targeted nor sufficient to sustain routine operation and maintenance requirements. Thus, there is a serious risk of slipping backwards on gains already made. The report highlights immediate steps that can be taken to sustain services already in place, while extending sanitation and drinking water provisioning.
