In 2000, the international community set out a vision for development through to 2015 – the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This vision included halving the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and sanitation. Globally, the target for water has been met, but the sanitation target has not, and several regions of the world are seriously off-track for both. The best estimates available show that at least 783 million people still lack clean water, while the true number may be far higher. Taking population growth into account, there are almost as many people without access to sanitation worldwide as there were 20 years ago. The poorest and most marginalised people have seen least progress and continue to suffer the greatest burden in terms of child deaths and diseases associated with inadequate water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).
