Event Description
Sanitation and Water for All is a global partnership of developing countries, donors, multi-lateral agencies, civil society and other development partners working together to achieve universal and sustainable access to sanitation and drinking water, with an immediate focus on achieving the Millennium Development Goals in the most off-track countries.

This transparent, accountable and results-oriented framework for action provides a common vision, values and principles that support a vision for everyone in the world to have sustainable access to sanitation and drinking water. 

Sanitation and Water for All aims to:
• Increase political prioritisation for sustainable sanitation and drinking water 
• Support strong national sanitation and drinking water planning, investment and accountability frameworks 
• Improve targeting and impact of resources for sustainable sanitation and drinking water 
• Support effective decision making by providing detailed information and evidence on sanitation and drinking water 
• Strengthen mutual accountability between governments and development partners.

Sanitation and Water for All has formalized the partnership and, to date, 59 partners have joined the global movement. This side event will provide an update on the partnership and its activities and discuss future directions, from a variety of perspectives.
