The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development commits UN member states to take bold and transformative steps to ‘shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path’, ‘realize the human rights of all’, ‘end poverty in all its forms’, and ensure ‘no one will be left behind’. Since 2000, billions of people have gained access to drinking water, sanitation and hygiene services, but many countries still have a long way to go to fully realize the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) ambition to achieve ‘universal’ access ‘for all’. The WHO/UNICEF  Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (JMP) report Progress on household drinking water, sanitation and hygiene assesses current rates of progress and the prospects for achieving SDG targets by 2030.
