Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)


While substantial global efforts have increased access to clean drinking water and sanitation, billions of people—mostly in rural areas—still lack in accessing these essential services. According to the UN data, one-third of the world population does not have safe drinking water, while two-fifths do not have a primary hand-washing facility with soap and water. More than 673 million people still practise open defecation.

Water touches every aspect of development and intersects across most sustainable development goals (SDGs) as it drives economic growth, supports healthy ecosystems and is fundamental for life itself.

AAN’s Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) team works in multiple countries to evaluate water and sanitation programmes, services and basic hygiene practices. Over the years, AAN has participated in and contributed to fifteen WASH-related projects globally, focusing on evaluation and strategy development.
