Climate Resilient WASH

4.1 # of people using at least basic sanitation services in daily life


This indicator assesses the number of people using basic sanitation services in their premises - one of the most effective measures for preventing diarrhea and other life-threatening diseases. 

This indicator links directly to SDG 1.4.1. The global Joint Monitoring Program (JMP) which measures our progress to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), measures two levels of access – to a basic service and to a safely managed service.  Data on this may be able feed into national SDG reporting.  The indicator also links to humanitarian minimum standards (Sphere) and is likely to be a WASH cluster / sector indicator.
