Save the date: Water Action Month - March 2017

Make every second count - the time is now.

2016 has been an incredible year for campaigning and advocacy on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). We saw the beginning of the new Sustainable Development Goals, which set our future development agenda until 2030. Now is a critical time as governments develop their national implementation plans - the country road maps on how to achieve this ambitious agenda over the next 14 years.

We have come far, but still have a long way to go.
