Water and Sanitation

OGP members tackle disparities and safety issues in water and sanitation through commitments ranging from access to corruption.

Introduction and Overview

Open government investments yield significant dividends in terms of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH). Water and sanitation delivery can be greatly improved with better transparency, participation, and accountability.

Worldwide, the challenges are increasingly complex and widespread: thirty percent do not have access to clean water and a troubling six in ten lack safely managed sanitation.

OGP countries are in a unique position to address many of the root causes of WASH issues, including corruption and poor quality, as well as lack of prioritization, access, equity, and accountability.
