Strategy to Help Achieve Access for All

According to the 2015 WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme 435 million Africans lacked basic drinking water service, and 736 million Africans lacked basic sanitation service.  

In November 2017, the African Ministers’ Council on Water (AMCOW) took a concrete step toward its role in realizing available and sustainable water and sanitation for all. At the 15th Anniversary Celebration and Executive Committee meetings of AMCOW, ministers from African countries, development partners, and sector stakeholders gathered to review and pass the 2018–2030 Strategic Plan for AMCOW.

African Sanitation Academy: Market and Feasibility Study in Southern Africa

This study is based on interviews with 66 key informants and officials from countries in Southern Africa, which together with limited desktop research, were conducted to gather and compile information and explore the possibilities for sanitation leadership training in the region. The Southern Africa study carefully considered the capacity building and leadership training needs of the urban sanitation sector (more than the rural sector).

African Sanitation Academy: Feasibility Report

This report collates the regional feasibility studies, which indicate that a lack of leadership in the sanitation sector is a significant factor contributing to poor performance. They also highlight the limited existing opportunities for developing leadership and management competencies through short, focused, “just-in-time” methods that meet the needs of the individual. Overall, the data has shown a high degree of congruence on whether it is feasible to create an ASA and what it should look like.

African Sanitation Academy: Market and Feasibility Study in East Africa

There are still many people who do not have access to improved sanitation and hygiene facilities or services in East Africa. For cities and other areas throughout the region, a lack of core country systems for sanitation, and a weak enabling environment, means that the building blocks for sanitation management and leadership are absent. To make the situation more challenging, targeting and implementation of sanitation improvements are clearly not meeting the needs of lower-income areas.

Africa, WASH, and the Millennium Development Goals: A Local Systems Case Study of How South Africa Achieved MDG Target 7c

Democratic dispensation in 1994 created a political and social platform that reshaped life in South Africa. There was a surge in common belief that the inequity and wrong of Apartheid should and could be rectified. Equity of access to water and sanitation were obvious targets for improvement. In 1994, an estimated 14–15 million South Africans were without access to an improved water supply, while close to 21 million—more than half of the population at that time—did not have access to improved sanitation facilities. These problems were most severe in poorer rural areas.

Africa, WASH, and the Millennium Development Goals: A Local Systems Case Study of How Senegal Achieved MDG Target 7c

Nationally, Senegal met the MDG target for water supply access. It did this by engaging the public and private sectors to effectively invest and report on investments. It focused on larger population centers, less on remote regions of the country. Its achievements set the stage for more equitable and widespread service provision as the country now works to achieve the SDGs, requiring sustainable management of universal access.
