Hosted by the United Nations, Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) is a global alliance of over 300 governments, donors, civil society organizations, and other development partners. We work together to catalyze political leadership and action towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 6 – Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
