Water and Sanitation

Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all


Water is essential for the survival and productivity of all life and ecosystems and the growing threat of water stresses has far reaching consequences for poor and vulnerable communities. Access to safe drinking water and sanitation is crucial, not only for people’s health and wellbeing, but also for poverty reduction and economic development. Sweden promotes efficient, fair and sustainable water use and management as well as improved access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene facilities. Sida’s financial support to the water and sanitation sector was approximately SEK 751 million in 2021. This accounts for approximately 2.8 percent of Sida’s total disbursements, a decrease by 37 percent over the last five years.
