Charity registration number 288701 www.wateraid.org Global Framework for Action 1.The problem 2.The response 3.The framework
Charity registration number 288701 www.wateraid.org The problem Water and sanitation progress in Africa is lagging behind most other sectors – Sanitation target not reached until 2108 Progress made in 2008 on commitments to action (0.5% GDP spend on san’), but lack of serious coordinated action between donors and African governments Only a quarter of aid for the sector(s) goes to Least Dev Countries (none of the top 5 are in Africa) The absence of clear points of accountability with sufficient authority to take action and progress chase constrain the effectiveness of sector efforts. IT’S AN ISSUE OF POLITICAL WILL!
Charity registration number 288701 www.wateraid.org The response A high profile international dialogue between donor and developing country governments to: –assess global progress, –identify structural weaknesses –propose policy solutions Need to have one single international forum equivalent to those for Education and Health that bring greater resolve and support from all stakeholders
