External Support Agencies

External Support Agencies is a varied constituency that plays a vital role in SWA, since they are instrumental in channelling funds and/or technical assistance to the water, sanitation and hygiene sector. They include national cooperation agencies, development banks, foundations, United Nations agencies, and other types of support organizations.

External Support Agencies that engage with SWA are more likely to harmonize and align their own efforts with governments’ national water, sanitation and hygiene strategies and budgets. The organizations also make commitments as part of the Mutual Accountability Mechanism, and are accountable for following up with action.

This constituency is represented in the Steering Committee by 3 elected and 2 ex-officio partners:
