Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC)

The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is a global, multi-stakeholder membership and partnership organization that works with poor people, organizations, governments and local entrepreneurs to improve sanitation and hygiene at scale.

Our Vision is “A world in which everyone, everywhere is able to practice safe sanitation and hygiene with dignity.”

Our Mission is “To enable all people and especially women, girls and those living in vulnerable situations to practice the
right to sanitation and hygiene across the course of their lives with dignity and safety.”

Founded in 1990, WSSCC’s work contributes to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 6, target 2, with far-reaching impacts on related SDG targets for health, education, women’s empowerment, reducing inequality, improved urban spaces and climate change mitigation.
