Welcome and thank you for participating in this process

The success of Agenda 2030, including Goal 6 and other WASH-related aspects, lies in its timely national-level implementation. For this to happen, governments will have to ensure transparency and participation in implementation processes, involving a wide range of stakeholders, including civil society, from the planning stage. Civil society must be in a position to make sure this happens and to make the most of opportunities presented by the Global Goals at the national level.

This national context assessment is one mechanism through which WASH civil society actors and others can capture and share information about how this process is being taken forward at the national level to support action in the following areas:

- Transparency and knowledge sharing: This is vital to ensure civil society have credible, up-to-date information, often from several different sources to inform effective participation in national implementation processes, and identify gaps where this is not happening.

- Identifying gaps: If you do not have all the information necessary to complete this national context assessment, your input into this process is still useful as will highlight gaps and blockages in knowledge and participation in processes.

- Advocacy: The information collated and shared via these national context assessments can then be used to inform evidence-based advocacy plans to influence Agenda 2030 implementation, how and where to influence government and ongoing processes, and identify gaps in capacity that may exist and how to overcome these.

More details about how to access the information collated from this national context assessment tool and other resources to support national level advocacy around implementation of WASH-related aspects of Agenda 2030 can be found once the process has been completed.
A note on terminology:
Agenda 2030 is used throughout as the term adopted during the negotiation of the post-2015 sustainable development framework which is made up of four elements: a declaration; the 17 Global Goals (made up of targets and indicators to measure progress); their means of implementation (a multi-stakeholder "mutual accountability" mechanism responsible for ensuring the Global Goals can achieve transformative results); and a framework for follow up and review.

The term ‘WASH-related aspects of Agenda 2030’ is used throughout and includes, but is not limited to, Global Goal 6 (Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all) - this is to acknowledge that WASH features in the language of a number of other targets and that increasing WASH access will also be a key element in achieving a number of related targets where it is not explicitly mentioned, due to the integrated nature of Agenda 2030. The Global Goals are also known as the Sustainable Development Goals - for consistency the former (or ‘Goals’) is used throughout.

A note on how your information will be used:
The information you share as part of this national context assessment will be made publicly available in support of the objectives outlined above. You will then be able to see if other responses about your country have been submitted. By completing this national context assessment you agree that the information you provide can be shared publicly and attributed to you.

If you have any questions about how your information will be stored and used, please contact info@endwaterpoverty.org
