Effective financing for drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) are essential for the sustainable delivery of services. The UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) indicate that there are substantial gaps in our understanding and tracking of financing to the WASH sector. Financial reporting is often insufficient to enable sound, evidence-based planning, and budgeting decisions.
To help rectify these shortcomings, WHO is leading the TrackFin initiative under the UN-Water GLAAS project. Its objectives are to define and test a globally accepted methodology to track financing to WASH at the national level. This methodology enables countries to track sector financing using standardized classifications and to develop a set of WASH accounts and indicators presented in a format comparable across regions and countries.
