The objective of the UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) is to monitor the inputs required to extend and sustain water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) systems and services. This second UN-Water GLAAS report presents data received from 74 developing countries, covering all the Millennium Development Goal regions, and from 24 external support agencies, representing approximately 90% of official development assistance for sanitation and drinking-water.

Sections 1 and 2 of the report describe the efforts of countries to be accountable and to plan and coordinate effectively. Section 3 presents data on financial flows. Section 4 examines the adequacy of the human resource base to implement WASH interventions and highlights the gaps in data. Section 5 describes the successes and constraints to extending WASH coverage in an equitable way. Section 6 describes priority-setting, targeting of development aid, and the coordination and alignment of assistance with country programmes. Section 7 focuses on sanitation, hygiene and drinking-water in schools and health-care facilities, reporting on access to WASH services in these public institutions. [authors abstract]
