Sanitation and Water for All is a partnership of national governments, donors, multilaterals, civil society organizations, development banks, and other development partners in the water and sanitation sector.
Sanitation and Water for All has a simple governance structure—a Steering Committee, an Annual Partnership Meeting and a small Secretariat. It is based on a set of core principles, grounded in the Paris Declaration and the Accra Agenda for Action—international agreements about aid effectiveness.
The vision and principles of Sanitation and Water for All are achieved primarily through existing mechanisms and programmes. The vast majority of what Sanitation and Water for All does is simply the work of its partners, positively influenced and guided by common principles and collaboration with the other partners. The Sanitation and Water for All partnership is based on mutual trust, support, and commitment to principles of aid effectiveness, including national ownership of plans.

The ultimate goal of Sanitation and Water for All is to ensure sanitation and water for all people globally. Universal access to water supply and sanitation is a fundamental underpinning of good health, dignity and prosperity.
Sanitation and universal access to water supply impacts all other areas of development and should be a guiding principle along with a focus on sustainability to ensure access is maintained over time.
