Safeguarding the World's Water FY 2010

The following report summarizes the fiscal year (FY) 2010 investments and programs of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in water supply and sanitation projects consistent with the Senator Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act of 2005 (Public Law [P.L.] 109–121).1 The report describes all USAID water management programs that strive to ensure “water security and sustainability with equity.”2 These programs address the following specific areas: 1) water supply, sanitation, and hygiene (WSSH); 2) watershed/water resources management (W/WRM) and global climate change adaptation; 3) water productivity (WP) and food security; and 4) water-related disaster risk reduction (DRR) from floods, storms, and droughts. The report presents these programs comprehensively in budget form (i.e., budget figures reflect the budget amounts from all projects), together with narrative descriptions of illustrative water sector activities undertaken by USAID/ Washington, D.C., and USAID country Missions and regional bureaus in FY 2010.
