Progrès en Matière d’Alimentation en Eau et d’Assainissement - Rapport 2012

Le Programme commun OMS/UNICEF de suivi de l’approvisionnement en eau et de l’assainissement, ou JMP, publie tous les deux ans un rapport sur l’accès à l’eau potable et à l’assainissement dans le monde, ainsi que sur les progrès réalisés vis-à-vis de la cible afférente à l’objectif du Millénaire pour le développement n° 7. Le rapport 2012 se fonde sur les données collectées lors d’enquêtes auprès des ménages et de recensements et inclut des ensembles de données à la fois récents et anciens dont le JMP a eu connaissance. Les estimations présentées ici décrivent la situation à la fin de l’année 2010 et remplacent celles que le JMP avait publiées dans sa version de mars 2010.
