USAID is working to improve the lives of millions of people around the globe by addressing the most basic of human needs—access to water and sanitation. And toward that end we made some news this year: introducing a new Global Water Coordinator, developing new indicators for water and sanitation, designating eight new priority countries, and sharing key results made during implementation of the U.S. Government Global Water Strategy.
In 2019, through stories, photo essays, and podcasts we also brought you face-to-face with the organizations, governments, and individuals working to deliver improved drinking water and sanitation services. We shared our learnings along the way through blogs, webinars, and evaluations. Take a look at some of the highlights of the year to see how USAID is making an impact.
