The international Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) – launched in 2015 – explicitly target to achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation by 2030. The German Development Cooperation with the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) as lead donor and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH as implementer launched in 2016 the multi-donor initiative Sanitation for Millions (S4M) to address the global challenges in the WASH sector and effectively contribute to the achievement of SDG 6.2.

S4M therewith complements other international initiative like Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) as well as the High Level Panel on Water by the United Nations and the World Bank. BMZ supports the promotion of access to sanitation in public institutions such as schools, health centers, and mosques.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation joined in the end of 2017 as a co-financier, funding measures in Uganda and Jordan and facilitating further outreach of S4M with a focus on safely managed sanitation approaches across the sanitation value chain, including safe access/use, containment, transportation, treatment and reuse.
