SanitationUNW-DPC actively seeks to strengthen the ability of UN-Water members and partners to support Member States in achieving water and sanitation-related goals and commitments, including the Millenium Development Goals. Sanitation is a major focus of UN-Water, particularly in its Task Forces on Sanitation and Wastewater, of which UNW-DPC is a member. World Water Day for 2010 focused on addressing water quality. At World Water Day 2010, UNW-DPC co-organized a Stakeholder Dialogue together with UNEP, UN-HABITAT and the other UN-Water programmes. World Water Day 2011 dealt with urbanization, which overlaps with both sanitation and water quality issues.
Activities in this area include an international training programme for mayors on urban water and sanitation in Nanjing, China in November 2008, a UN-Water seminar on "UN-Water's Perspective on Water Supply and Sanitation and Needs for Capacity Development in Africa" in March 2010 at the International African Water Congress in Kampala, Uganda, UNW-DPC's activities at the 2010 World Water Week, and activities at the 2011 World Water Week.
