Summary
This report synthesizes the status of sanitation for the South-East and East-Asia countries following the 3rd Asia Ministerial Conference on Sanitation and Hygiene meeting. It provides more insights on the status of sanitation in the region and supplements the two global reports, i.e. WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme Report, which provides the analysis and assessment of all countries in relation to the MDG Target 7C, and the GLASS Report, which provides the analysis and assessment on the water and sanitation sector. It is hoped that this report will bring about renewed commitment for accelerating investments in the building of improved sanitation infrastructure with an emphasis on sustainability and affordability so to elevate the privacy and dignity of the populations served.
