GLAAS initiative

Global Annual Assessment on Sanitation and Drinking-water

WHO is leading the GLAAS initiative on behalf of UN-Water. Publication of the first GLAAS report is scheduled for March 2010.

The UN-Water  Secretariat requested a report on progress in the assessment and how its results will fit into the Global Framework for Action on Sanitation and Water Supply. The information is available on the following web

UN-Water, an inter-agency mechanism formally established in 2003 by the United Nations High Level Committee on Programmes, has evolved out of a history of close collaboration among UN agencies. It was created to add value to UN initiatives by fostering greater co-operation and information-sharing among existing UN agencies and outside partners

UN-Water focuses on:

  • Providing information policy briefs and other communication materials for policy- makers and managers who work directly with water issues, other decision-makers that have an influence on how water is used, as well as the general public.
  • Building the knowledge base on water issues through efficient monitoring and reporting systems and facilitating easy access to this knowledge through regular reports and the Internet.
  • Providing a platform for system-wide discussions to identify challenges in global water management, analyse options for meeting these challenges and ensuring that reliable information and sound analysis informs the global policy debate on water.
