The goal of the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (IDWSSD) (1981-1990) was to improve and expand water supply and sanitation services to all people, regardless of their stage of development and their social and economic conditions. A comparison is made between the number of people served in 1980 and 1990 and the proportion of the population served in these two years. The report covers the socio-economic and health situation of the different regions as they relate to water supply and sanitation. It reviews the status of water supply and sanitation services on a global, national and regional basis. Regions covered include the African, American, South-East Asian, Eastern Mediterranean, and Western Pacific regions. The report also looks at cost, manpower, service levels, training, and programme orientations for the future. It is supported by various statistics, graphs and tables.
