The UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS) is entering a new strategy period after successfully completing three full cycles and a pilot. With the new strategy, some things have stayed the same, but some things have changed as GLAAS evolves looking towards the future and the Sustainable Development Goals.

For this strategy period, GLAAS will alternate between focusing on financing and the broad GLAAS covering the enabling environment in more depth. This means that the country survey (short form) for the 2016/2017 cycle will have a complete section on financing and select questions on other aspects of the enabling environment. A long version covering all aspects of the enabling environment is also available.

The 2017 report, to be released prior to the Sanitation and Water for All High Level Meeting in April 2017, will feature finance while still covering elements of all traditional GLAAS topics (governance, monitoring, human resources).

For more information about the GLAAS 2016/2017 cycle or to participate in the 2016 survey, please contact glaas@who.int.
