Water supply and sanitation

Access to water and sanitation is a human right and is central to better health, education and economic productivity. Inclusive approaches to water and sanitation require infrastructure and supporting social services to integrate the needs of poor and vulnerable groups. We take a needs-driven approach to address water supply and sanitation and integrate investments in infrastructure alongside social mobilization. To date, Cowater International has implemented over 150 water supply and sanitation projects in more than 35 countries.
