We focus our capacity building programmes on the topics we believe are most pressing in WASH: equity and sustainability of services and accelerating progress - in particular in sanitation.

Our programmes address the rural, urban and peri-urban WASH subsectors:

Our main objectives in Water, Sanitation & Hygiene

Our work in the WASH sector aims to improve the performance of all parties involved. We contribute to improved WASH service delivery, specifically:

1. Access to safe, sufficient and reliable drinking water supply;
2. Access to improved sanitation;
3. Sustained positive change in hygiene behaviour.


SNV intervenes across the rural, urbanm small town and peri-urban WASH subsectors. Our focus is on sustainability of existing water infrastructure and behavioural change. We do not construct large infrastructure. Target groups consist of national governments, local governments, the private sector, and civil society.
