Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) is a global partnership of country governments, private sector and civil society organizations, external support agencies, research and learning institutions and other development partners working together to catalyze political leadership and action, improve accountability and use scarce resources more effectively. Partners work towards a common vision of sanitation, hygiene and water for all, always and everywhere.
Recognizing that developing countries and aid organizations achieve more by working together, SWA aims to turn the current situation around by creating a virtuous cycle of robust planning, institutional strengthening, better resource utilization and higher investment that has the potential to make a real difference to the lives of billions of people.
SWA provides a transparent, accountable and results-oriented framework for action based on a common vision, values and principles. SWA has over 100 partners, who work together to coordinate high-level action, empower or strengthen governments (from developing countries) to lead and coordinate the sector; improve accountability and use scarce resources more effectively.
