This is an introductory film showing some areas of the work of Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP).

Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) is a tri-sector partnership between the private sector, civil society and academia focused on addressing the increasing global problem of inadequate access to water and sanitation for the urban poor and the attainment of the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets, particularly those relating to water and sanitation.

It achieves this through supporting the adoption and replication of effective, sustainable and scalable models of pro-poor urban water and sanitation services by service providers and/or national governments. WSUP empowers service providers to demonstrate effective models in order to mobilise investments for further improvements and promotes successful approaches internationally. WSUP has a strategic portfolio of six countries in Africa and South Asia.

The overall impact of this is the reduction of poverty and the improvement of health and living standards for the urban poor. WSUP believes access to safe, affordable water, improved sanitation and improved hygiene practices underpin poverty reduction through impacts on health, education and livelihoods and improving access to these fundamentals of life are a critical step towards reducing poverty. As such, WSUP's work directly contributes to the attainment of MDG goals 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7.
