About WSUP Advisory

WSUP Advisory is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP). Established in March 2015 as a Community Interest Company, WSUP Advisory operates as an independently governed, for-profit company. We help municipalities, utilities and independent service providers around the world tackle the challenges of rapid urbanisation and improve life for millions of people who lack access to improved water and sanitation services.

We work with local and national governments and regulators to create favourable operating environments for these service providers. We also support and advise international finance institutions, international agencies and non-government institutions, corporations, and foundations investing in, or supporting, water and sanitation improvements.

WSUP improves life for millions of people who lack access to improved water and sanitation services.
