The GLAAS 2017 report focuses on the key role of financing in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector. It is designed to provide a global perspective as the world embarks on achieving the SDGs, particularly SDG 6 relating to clean water and sanitation, which is essential to good health and well-being. It also provides country-specific data for governments to use as they plan investments and allocate resources.

Five key findings emerged from the GLAAS 2016/2017 results:
1. National WASH budgets are increasing as countries prepare to take on board the SDGs, yet there remains a discrepancy between global aspirations and national realities.
2. The SDGs require greater ambitions for WASH, but there remains a lack of financial sustainability for reaching the unserved and maintaining services.
3. More and better data are available for informed decision-making.
4. Official development assistance (ODA) disbursements for water and sanitation are increasing, but future investments are uncertain.
5. Extending WASH services to vulnerable groups is a policy priority, but implementation is lagging behind.
