During 2020-2021, WSUP’s work became more vital than ever before, with the Covid-19 pandemic driving increased need for general good hygiene practices.
Our Annual Report shows where, how, and how much WSUP’s work has benefited the communities it serves across Africa and south Asia.
In the year to March 2021, despite global challenging circumstances, WSUP reached:
515,000 people with improved water access
721,000 residents with improved sanitation services;
5.5 million people with improved access to good hygiene;
and mobilised $8 million in additional investment.
Lord Paul Boateng, WSUP’s chairman, says in his opening message:
“As a world leader in research and practical assistance in the market-led delivery of access to urban water, sanitation and hygiene, our efforts are critical to the achievement of SDG 6, clean water and sanitation, and SDG 11, sustainable communities and cities.”
Neil Jeffery, WSUP’s CEO, adds:
“Covid-19 highlighted how vital water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) is, how central it can be to combating disease and how WSUP’s expertise is fundamental to overcoming that challenge in urban areas.”
