World Bank Water and Sanitation Program (WSP)

Access to Water Supply and Sanitation Services (WSS) remains a perennial challenge for the development community. The historic interventions in the sector typically relied on financing infrastructure without adequately assessing the institutional framework and the needs of poor people. In addition there has been a lack of analysis of what worked at scale. Against these challenges and since 2005, SDC partnered with the Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP) to improve global knowledge on WSS with emphasis on analytical and knowledge dissemination.
