The Global Water Security & Sanitation Partnership (GWSP) is an international partnership launched in 2017 to support countries around the world in meeting the targets related to water in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly those of Goal 6, which calls on the global community to “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.” Administered by and housed within the World Bank’s Water Global Practice (Water GP), GWSP supports activities under five priority themes that are critical for meeting the SDGs: sustainability, inclusion, financing, institutions, and resilience.
This report covers the 12 months from July 2018 through June 2019 and describes GWSP’s results and the impact it has made as it concludes its second year of operation.
In the context of this report, the term water refers to the full spectrum of subsectors, including water resource management; water supply, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH); water and agriculture; and dam safety and storage, as well as water and the economy. In effect, GWSP covers the entire water landscape. When describing specific activities or policies that impact these subsectors, those specific terms are used to describe GWSP’s support.
GWSP builds on 40 years of experience through the earlier Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) and the Water Partnership Program (WPP). In selective instances, the report refers to work that may have begun under these earlier programs, but has continued under GWSP or through ongoing World Bank operations.
