Mapping EU support for sanitation in Africa

By Andrew P. Cotton, P. van Maanen, Rebecca E. Scott and B. Valfrey-Visser


This report was prepared for the Africa Working Group of the EU Water Initiative by\ud WEDC Loughborough University UK in Association with HYDROCONSEIL France. It is available from the WEDC website: study addresses a number of key concerns of\ud AMCOW, the European Union (EU) and other donors\ud around the need to increase support to sanitation in\ud order to accelerate the progress of national plans, Africawide\ud goals, and the attainment of the MDG target on\ud sanitation.\ud The purpose of the study is to obtain an overview of the\ud status of the involvement of EU Member States and the\ud European Commission in sanitation-related activities in\ud Africa. It is anticipated that the findings of this work will\ud have the potential to be used for both arguing for greater\ud priority for sanitation within the international architecture\ud and also for individual donors to use in discussing their\ud own Official Development Assistance (ODA). The work is complementary to the report from 2008\ud on mapping EU development assistance to the water\ud sector in Africa. This earlier report had a much wider\ud remit and as such, the Sanitation Mapping report can be\ud considered as being supplementary to it
