WSSCC Membership

WSSCC members are committed to achieving universal access to safe and affordable drinking water, adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all, and ending open defecation – paying special attention to the needs of women and girls

We are a global, multi-stakeholder membership and partnership-based organization that works at the local, national, regional, and global levels to advance sanitation and hygiene for all, with a particular focus on poor, vulnerable, and marginalized people, so that no one is left behind. We use this as the basis for related achievements in health, education, gender equality, urbanization, and climate change.

Good governance is at the heart of our commitment to serve those central to our mission and is the foundation for sustainable programming and accountability to our stakeholders and donors.

“As a WSSCC member, I’ve had the opportunity to learn about what other countries are doing well and struggling with. This is encouraging for all of us, especially in the developing countries to understand how we are progressing alongside others. This platform has created networks for me in the WASH sector that I would not have otherwise had.”

– WSSCC member Maria Mutagamba

The membership base reflects the diverse groups of individuals working to make water, sanitation and hygiene global priorities. As such, it is comprised of individuals who may be working in, or representing, civil society, local and national governments, academia, the development sector, and UN agencies among others.
