The challenge

Availability and access to water and sanitation services is fundamental to preserving the health and well-being of all human beings. Water and sanitation are also at the core of sustainable development, and the benefits they provide allows for economic growth and environmental sustainability.


Despite the progress made in the last decades, today, 2.2 billion people lack safely managed drinking water and 4.2 billion still have no access to safely managed sanitation.


Our solution

Sustainable Sanitation and Water Management, SSWM, is our contribution to finding solutions to this current crisis. SSWM is a holistic approach that brings together the principles of Integrated Water Resource Management and Sustainable Sanitation. It considers the water and the nutrient cycles, while linking best practices on sanitation, water and agriculture. SSWM does not prescribe a specific technology but allows local practitioners to plan interventions giving equal importance to hardware and software tools.

Our contribution to the SDGs achievement

Sustainable Sanitation and Water Management offers a clear path in achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 6 “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”.


Because Goal 6 is one of the most interconnected SDG, improved access to WASH aids education, economic growth, poverty reduction, health and more.

Lack of water and sanitation services affect the daily lives of millions of people around the world, disrupting their ability to develop and live fully. Our commitment is to ensure that innovative solutions benefit those most in need, working hand in hand with those mandated to deliver WASH services.
