UN-Water is dedicated exclusively to water and sustainably managing water and sanitation systems. Over 30 UN organizations carry out water and sanitation programs, reflecting that water issues run through all of UN’s main focus areas. UN-Water’s current focus is coordination of efforts between UN entities and international organizations on water and sanitation issues.
As global population increases, we face increasingly complex challenges in ensuring everyone has access to sustainably-managed water and sanitation services. To meet this aim, UN-Water informs policy processes by identifying emerging issues and developing effective, collaborative responses.
