FACTS & FIGURES

Zambia's recognition of the importance of the water and sanitation sector in its economic development and in the reduction of poverty is evidenced by the central role that water and sanitation is given in the Country's medium-term development plan, the Seventh National Development Plan (SNDP) (2017 - 2021) and the long-term plan, the National Vision 2030.
 

Water supply and Sanitation is one of the seven sectors targeted for "priority expenditure" in the SNDP, alongside agriculture, health, education, infrastructure (roads) and public order and safety. It also contributes to the achievement of SDG of halving the proportion of people without access to safe water and sanitation by 2030.
