IRC is an international think tank actively building strong water, sanitation and hygiene systems – from the bottom up and the top down. We exist to support countries to build strong local and national services, underpinned by resilient systems, that transform lives and build equity, justice and opportunity for all.
With just eight years left to achieve UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: Clean Water and Sanitation for All by 2030, IRC and Water For People have joined forces to drive rapid progress in the delivery of water and sanitation services in 15 countries and reach 200 million people over the next decade. Through our newly formed alliance, we have established "Destination 2030," our vision to play our part in achieving SDG 6.
The Destination 2030 vision is clear: the pursuit of justice and opportunity for all through the delivery of safe water, sanitation, and hygiene services. A simple truth drives us – we can do more together, and do it faster than we can alone.
Uniting citizens, experts and governments to deliver sustainable services to 3.6 million people
Making lasting change takes everyone, in all parts of the system, to challenge the way they think and act.
