The purpose of this Global Annual Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) pilot report is to present the concept of a possible global, periodic, comprehensive reporting mechanism to inform policy-making in the sanitation and drinking-water sectors. The data sources used in the report are the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation (JMP), the OECD Development Assistance Committee Creditor Reporting System (OECD-DAC CRS), other United Nations statistics, as well as information specifically collected by GLAAS staff for this pilot study from seven countries and, jointly with the European Union Water Initiative – Africa Working Group, from 25 external support agencies.
