According to a 2017 report by the World Health Organization and UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme, 3 in 10 people worldwide (2.1 billion) lack access to safe, readily available water at home, and more than 6 in 10 (4.5 billion) lack safely managed sanitation. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) also set the Target 6.2 of universal access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all, and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations.

In order to generate more information on this SDG Target 6.2, the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) has developed an Evidence Gap Map on WASH that provides an analysis of the studies of the impact of WASH promotional approaches on behaviour change, health and socio-economic outcomes in households, communities, schools and health facilities.

WSSCC and 3ie have organised a webinar to share the results of 3ie’s Evidence Gap Map and Hugh Waddington, the Senior Evaluation Specialist at 3ie, will discuss the findings and implications for policies, programmes and research on this field.
