Samenvatting: 

The primary objective of the UN-HABITAT Water and Sanitation Trust Fund (WSTF) is to contribute to the international efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals for Water and Sanitation. The strategy of the WSTF is to target the key constraints by focussing on: The countries that are not making sufficient progress, such as the lagging countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia; Training and capacity building to overcome institutional weaknesses and inefficiencies; Increasing the flow of investment, especially investment where it is needed most, in the expanding slums and shanty-towns where the urban poor are concentrated; Addressing information gaps by improving the information systems used to monitor service coverage and progress in meeting the MDGs.
