Status of Implementation of CSD-13 Policy Actions on Water & Sanitation
UNDESA, 2008
This report is an attempt to further the implementation agenda in the domain of water and sanitation. It is based on a survey carried out in 35 countries under the project ?Global Initiative for Rationalizing Water-Related Information (GIRWI )?, on the state of implementation of policy actions and measures relating to integrated water resources management, water supply and sanitation.

The survey collects information on three questions: what works (and what doesn?t), what areas need urgent attention, and how to scale up successful practices. It builds upon the decisions reached during the 13th Session of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) in 2005, under which integrated resource management was accepted as a common framework for the sustainable development of water and sanitation sectors. The countries selected for the survey represent a wide spectrum of human, natural, and economic resources.
