From the transformative effect of simplified sewers, to our models of WASH for schools which are changing how cities are serving their children, in 2022-2023 WSUP advanced further in its work providing clean water and decent sanitation and promoting appropriate hygiene in low-income urban communities.
Our 2022-2023 Annual Report shows the result of WSUP’s activities, benefitting more than 10 million people during the year, across Africa and South Asia. In the period, we achieved:
325,469 people with improved water access;
98,366 residents with improved sanitation services;
10,857,871 people with improved access to good hygiene facilities, information or education;
and mobilised more than $4 million in additional investment.
Lord Paul Boateng, WSUP’s chairman, wrote:
“(WSUP’s) multi-disciplinary approach is rooted in partnerships between groundbreaking research and best practices in implementation… It delivers systemic sustainable change to the lives of millions in countless communities.”
Ed Mitchell, WSUP’s CEO, writes:
“The period covered by this Annual Report was characterised by global uncertainty and stress… It is to the credit of our teams that they ensured the impact of our work was not diminished during this period, indeed remarkably it continued to expand.”
