The 2013 Progress Update on the 2012 SWA High Level Meeting Commitments shows encouraging steps have been taken since the 2012 Sanitation and Water for All High Level Meeting , but additional effort is needed to fulfill commitments by 2014.

The report, launched on 14th August 2013, tracks achievements made against the commitments so far.

“The monitoring report shows exceptional achievements and illustrates that that political will and strong leadership can drive action, even in the toughest environments,” says SWA Chair, H.E. John Agyekum Kufuor. “I am immensely impressed that countries were able to translate commitments into action on the ground. This report shows that SWA High Level Meetings add value.”
