RWSN - Rural Water Supply Network

Project completed

Universal access to safe, affordable water is at the core of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 and key to the realisation of human rights. However, achieving this in rural areas is particularly challenging given the high levels of poverty and discrimination as well as poor infrastructure. The Rural Water Supply Network (RWSN) is the only global network that offers powerful mechanisms to share expertise and collaborate with local and global partners to effectively address these water issues.
