1.Project Background

The Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) is a UN-Water initiative implemented by the World Health Organization (WHO). GLAAS objectives are defined as, at the global and regional level, monitoring the inputs (in terms of human resources and finance) and the enabling environment (in terms of laws, plans and policies, institutional and monitoring arrangements), required to sustain and extend water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) systems and services to all, and especially to the most vulnerable population groups. GLAAS is also mandated to analyse the factors associated with progress in order to identify drivers and bottlenecks, highlight knowledge gaps and assess strengths and challenges within and across countries. It aims to facilitate the work of government-led platforms to enhance coordination across the various sectors, institutions and actors influencing and requiring WASH service delivery.

In a national context, GLAAS aims to complement sector review processes and to assist in assessing the state of the enabling environment including financial and human resources inputs being directed to sanitation, drinking-water and hygiene whilst identifying barriers and enablers. GLAAS is not meant to be an additional burden on countries, but rather a tool to aid in existing national processes.

In addition to providing sanitation and drinking-water policymakers and practitioners with a more comprehensive evidence base, the GLAAS process also informs political decision-making, particularly through its association with the Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) Partnership. SWA provides a global platform for discussion among countries and donors participating in the SWA High Level Dialogue that culminates in the SWA High Level Meeting, the next of which is scheduled for May 2022, hosted by the Government of Indonesia.

For the GLAAS 2021/2022 cycle, data collection will be from December to April and the GLAAS 2021/22 report will be published before the SWA High Level Meeting in May 2022, in Indonesia.
