About the entity

-Water
UN-Water coordinates the efforts of UN entities and international organizations working on water and sanitation issues.

The Heads of State Initiatives for Water and Sanitation, backed by Sanitation and Water For All (SWA), are a global movement to inspire and support the world’s most ambitious and forward-thinking leaders, to achieve a common vision to secure water, sanitation and hygiene for all. 

At the launch event at World Water Week in Stockholm in August 2023, representatives from several governments and their development partners announced their national initiatives and shared information about ongoing engagement plans with their Heads of State and Government.
