End Water Poverty (EWP) is a global civil society coalition campaigning to end the water and sanitation crisis. Established in 2007, we have now grown to over 350 members in more than 50 countries around the world, working in all regions across Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe and North America. Our members are civil society organisations ranging in size and scale, from large international non-governmental organisations, such as WaterAid and regional networks, such as the Freshwater Action Network - South Asia (FANSA), to national networks, as well as small grassroots and community-based organisations.
We are united by our common goal to end the water and sanitation crisis for all. We are dedicated to demanding and delivering effective global advocacy which results in universal access to sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). To achieve this we work at a range of different levels to leverage change:
Globally: Enable civil society voices on WASH are heard throughout key global processes so that sustainable WASH becomes a high priority on the international and national political agenda.
Regionally: Influence regional bodies so that they prioritise sustainable WASH.
Nationally: National networks and members will develop long term advocacy campaign plans so that we push governments to implement sustainable WASH for all.
