USAID – Investments in drinking water supply, sanitation and hygiene

Investments in Drinking Water Supply Projects and Related Water Resources Activities-Report to Congress, Fiscal Year 2007. (pdf, full-text)

This is the fiscal year (FY) 2007 Report to Congress from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) about obligations made during the year in drinking water supply projects and related activities. The figures presented in this report are based upon actual obligations reported by USAID Operating Units around the world. The report also briefly summarizes associated supporting water management programs that help ensure water security and sustainability with equity. These include water resources management, water productivity, and water-related disaster risk reduction.

During FY 2007, USAID provided access to improved water supply to more than two million additional people. Another two million additional people were provided with access to improved sanitation. The Agency’s investments in “drinking water supply projects and related activities” reflect the urgent need to provide safe and affordable domestic water supply that is effectively integrated into overall water resources management.

In FY 2007, USAID exceeded both the worldwide ($200 million) and the Africa ($50 million) Congressional directives, obligating $213 million worldwide for drinking water supply projects and related activities, and obligating almost $104 million for drinking water activities in Africa. This $213 million for FY 2007 represents an increase from the $203 million in FY 2006.
