Progress on household drinking water, sanitation and hygiene 2000-2017 : special focus on inequalities

Some 2.2 billion people around the world do not have safely managed drinking water services, 4.2 billion people do not have safely managed sanitation services, and 3 billion lack basic handwashing facilities. This report assesses national, regional and global progress in reducing inequalities in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services at the household level for the period 2000-2017. It focuses on the following longstanding WASH sector objectives, which are reflected in the global Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets and indicators related to WASH: 1. Ending open defecation 2. Reducing inequalities in basic WASH services 3. Reducing inequalities in safely managed water and sanitation services. Since the 2017 progress update, the JMP global database on inequalities has been expanded to include service level and facility type estimates disaggregated by wealth quintile and sub-national region for nearly 100 countries. The report includes a separate chapter on strengthening monitoring. There are extensive annexes with both national and regional and global estimates for drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene.

Abstract

Some 2.2 billion people around the world do not have safely managed drinking water services, 4.2 billion people do not have safely managed sanitation services, and 3 billion lack basic handwashing facilities. This report assesses national, regional and global progress in reducing inequalities in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services at the household level for the period 2000-2017. It focuses on the following longstanding WASH sector objectives, which are reflected in the global Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets and indicators related to WASH: 1. Ending open defecation 2. Reducing inequalities in basic WASH services 3. Reducing inequalities in safely managed water and sanitation services. Since the 2017 progress update, the JMP global database on inequalities has been expanded to include service level and facility type estimates disaggregated by wealth quintile and sub-national region for nearly 100 countries. The report includes a separate chapter on strengthening monitoring. There are extensive annexes with both national and regional and global estimates for drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene.
