New UNICEF/WHO publication on safely managed drinking water

UNICEF and WHO are pleased to announce the new Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation (JMP) 2017 Thematic Report: Safely Managed Drinking Water. The report considers the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) target for universal, equitable access to safely managed drinking water and outlines JMP plans for enhanced monitoring of drinking water in the SDG era. It also examines the availability of data on safely managed drinking water services.

New 'ladders' for monitoring drinking water services at home, at school and in health facilities are presented in the report, together with proposals for enhanced monitoring of inequalities and affordability of drinking water services. The WHO/UNICEF JMP 2017 Progress Update and SDG Baseline report will be published at the end of June. 

The WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation is responsible for global monitoring of progress towards the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets on drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).
