USAID Announces Partnership with Toilet Board Coalition
Public-private partnerships have significant potential to accelerate progress toward the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals’ sanitation target. An exciting new Global Development Alliance between USAID and the Toilet Board Coalition promises to strengthen efforts to reach the 2.4 billion worldwide still without adequate sanitation.
Inadequate sanitation remains one of the greatest obstacles standing in the way of sustainable public health improvements and improved economic development prospects across much of the world. Despite the considerable progress made in improving and extending sanitation coverage globally during the Millennium Development Goal era, the amount of unmet need remains daunting: In 2016, one in every three of the planet’s 7.4 billion people still does not have access to a toilet.
