New video: 'Success at the Sanitation and Water for all High Level Meeting'

Watch End Water Poverty's new video celebrating the commitments made at the Sanitation and Water for All High Level Meeting and calling on world leaders to keep their promises!

A great new video has been produced to celebrate the success of the historic Sanitation and Water for All High Level Meeting in April 2012! This video shows just some of the pledges made by both developing and donor countries at the meeting in Washington, D.C!



You can see all of the statements of commitments made by countries at this crucial meeting here.

What do you think of the commitments made by your country? Let us know!

End Water Poverty welcomes the commitments made but emphasises that there is still a funding shortfall if countries are to reach these ambitious targets and get water and sanitation to those most in need.

Rudy Amenga-Etego, from the African Civil Society Network on Water and Sanitation (ANEW) who represented civil society at meeting said: “We’re pleased to see ambitious commitments being made to get water and sanitation to our citizens. We now need to see new funding, clear plans and better targeting to make sure these promises can be kept.”
