Building on a nearly half-century of collaboration driven by the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) and others, the GWSP was launched in 2017. The GWSP identifies five priority themes for action: sustainability, inclusion, institutions, financing, and resilience. GWSP aims to make the ambition articulated within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) a reality.
