Knowledge hub

The Millennium Development Goals are coming to an end. This report provides insight in how the goal on drinking water was met, and how much still needs to be done to reach the goal on providing people with improved sanitation facilities. The report shows how countries in Sub-Saharan are still struggling both to increase access to improved sources of drinking water and to end open defecation. Inspiring is the inequality tree, shown on page 18. The report shows a clear country comparison, insights in differences between rich and poor, and an overview of progress per region and country in Annex 2 and 3.
