About:

-UN-Water: UN-Water coordinates the United Nations’ work on water and sanitation. UN-Water is a ‘coordination mechanism’.
-GLAAS Report: The UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) 2022 report compiles new data on drinking-Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) from 121 countries and territories and 23 External Support Agencies (ESAs).

-->Highlights of the Report:
-Human Resource: Less than one-third of countries reported maintaining enough human resources to manage essential Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) tasks.
-National Coverage Targets: 45% of countries are on track to meet their drinking-water coverage targets, but only 25% are meeting their sanitation targets.
-Finance: While WASH budgets in some countries have increased, a significant portion — more than 75% of them — reported having inadequate resources to carry out their WASH plans and objectives.
-Climate Resilience of WASH Systems: Most WASH policies and plans do not consider climate change threats to WASH services, nor do they take the climate resilience of WASH technology and management systems into account.
-External Support: Aid for water and sanitation decreased by 5.6% between 2017 and 2020, and the geographical targeting of the aid shifted.

-WASH; WASH is an acronym that stands for the interrelated areas of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.
