Content - Summary

The aim of this study is to estimate the health impacts and economic costs and benefits of improving water supply and sanitation services, with a focus on the least developed countries that are “off-track” to meet the water supply and sanitation MDG targets. In other words, based on trends from 1990 to 2004, these countries are predicted to fall short of one or both of the MDG targets for water supply and sanitation. The study models the impacts of low cost water supply and sanitation improvements in countries where the predicted coverage in 2015 falls short of the water supply and sanitation MDG targets, with the aim of focusing existing budgets as well as new resource allocations on the achievement of the MDG targets in these off-track countries. The study also estimates the costs and benefits of achieving universal access to improved drinking water supply and sanitation.
