GWC Publishes Regional WASH Backgrounders
In anticipation of World Water Day, GWC has released a set of WASH background documents. These backgrounders were developed as overviews of the water, sanitation and hygiene conditions not only around the world but also for specific regions including the Americas, Africa, the Eastern Mediterranean, Europe, Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific. Each backgrounder identifies key local challenges, contextualizes regional statistics and identifies the countries in greatest need of improvements in WASH. Newcomers to the sector and long-time WASH stakeholders can use them as a guide to better understand unique and region-specific WASH challenges. Global Water Challenge is happy to provide them for complementary download here.
