The WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation known as the JMP is mandated by the United Nations to report every two years on access to drinking water and sanitation worldwide and on progress towards related targets under Millennium Development Goal 7. This 2012 report is based on data gathered from household surveys and censuses including both recent andolder data sets that have come to the attention of the JMP. The estimates presented here describe the situation as of end 2010 and supersede those of the JMP update published in March 2010. The report brings welcome news: The MDG drinking water target which calls for halving the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water between 1990 and2015 was met in 2010 five years ahead of schedule. However the report also shows why the job is far from finished. Many still lack safe drinking water and the world is unlikely to meet the MDG sanitation target. Accordingly this report details work under way to refine both indicators and methods of monitoring as part of the 2010-2015 JMP strategy. It also discusses the beginnings of a process to develop new water sanitation and hygiene goals targets and indicators beyond 2015 in alignment with the human right to water and sanitation and the mandate of the UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Right to Water and Sanitation.
