The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council's mission is to achieve sustainable water supply, sanitation and hygiene for all people in the world.

WSSCC puts people at the centre of its development work. It fosters sanitation demand creation through a large network of field practitioners and global stakeholders. They are the pillars of WSSCC's work, which focuses on poor people in developing countries who lack access to adequate sanitation and water supply services.

The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is a global multi-stakeholder partnership and membership organisation that works to save lives and improve livelihoods. It does so by enhancing collaboration among sector agencies and professionals who are working to improve access for the 2.5 billion people without safe sanitation and the 783 million people without clean drinking water. Through its work, WSSCC contributes to the broader goals of poverty eradication, health and environmental improvement, gender equality and long-term social and economic development. WSSCC has coalitions in more than 20 countries, members in more than 160 countries, and a Geneva-based Secretariat which is a unit of the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS).
