Water & Sanitation Program - The World Bank
The Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) is an international partnership to help the poor gain sustained access to water supply and sanitation services. Administered by the World Bank with financial support from several bi-lateral, multi-lateral, and private donors, WSP is a decentralized partnership and operates through offices in Africa, East Asia, Latin America and South Asia. A major thrust of the programs is to help its clients prepare for and implement actions towards meeting the water supply and sanitation (WSS) Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In pursuing their mission, WSP staff provides advisory support to projects and policies to help identify and disseminate best practices and lessons from experience across countries, assist clients in the implementation of pilot projects to test out new ideas, and facilitate informal networks of practitioners and sector stakeholders. Additional information about WSP can be found on the program website (www.wsp.org).
