Progress on Drinking Water and Sanitation: 2012 update
  • United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation (JMP), World Health Organization (WHO). March 2012
  • This Progress on Drinking Water and Sanitation reports every two years on access to drinking water and sanitation worldwide and on progress towards related targets under Millennium Development Goal 7 "to halve, by 2015, the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation". The estimates presented in the 2012 report describe the situation as of end-2010 and supersede those of the JMP update published in March 2010.
