Water and Sanitation Trust Fund

UN-HABITAT launched the Water and Sanitation Trust Fund in October 2002 to help governments meet their commitment to the water target of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). That target seeks “to reduce by half the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and sanitation by the year 2015”. The Trust Fund’s activities are directed at creating smarter water policies and increased investment in water and sanitation for the urban poor.
