From climate adaptation efforts to a stronger push for better living conditions for women and girls, in 2021-2022 WSUP advanced further in its work providing clean water and decent sanitation and promoting appropriate hygiene in low-income urban communities.
Our 2021-2022 Annual Report shows the result of WSUP’s activities, benefitting more than 1 million people in the past year, across Africa and South Asia. In the period, we achieved:
618,418 people with improved water access;
580,730 residents with improved sanitation services;
168,454 people with improved access to good hygiene;
and mobilised more than $12 million in additional investment.
Lord Paul Boateng, WSUP’s chairman, wrote:
“In addition to our work with households and families, we are also investing more and more in providing clean water and decent toilets in schools, helping reduce student absences and improving the educational chances for children, particularly girls.”
Ed Mitchell, who in 2022 assumed the position of WSUP’s CEO, writes:
“Together with our supportive partners, we can take pride in what we’ve done so far, but we also need to raise our sights and ambitions to reach many more people in desperate need.”
