Anti sanitation and water poverty campaigners agreed on three aims for the End Water Poverty Campaign for 2011-2013 in Delhi in January 2011. Campaigners gathered from 14 countries including Nepal to analyse campaign success to date and build an ambitious strategy for the next three years.

1. Prioritization and targeting: Governments prioritise sanitation and water, by increasing sanitation and water funding and improving the targeting of WASH funding to the most marginalized countries and communities.

2. Sanitation and Water for All: The Sanitation and Water for All partnership becomes an established, effective mechanism to improve access to safe and sustainable sanitation and water services for increased numbers of poor and marginalized people.

3. Water, sanitation and other sectors: The health and education sectors globally and nationally recognize, integrate and take action on sanitation and water.

The meeting affirmed the vision for End Water Poverty to be a global, open source campaign, with national and international members of civil society organisations who agree to work together generously in an ambitious, mass, creative, relentless movement for change. The success of the past year’s campaign in achieving the Sanitation and Water for All partnership and significant government increases in provision of clean drinking water and sanitation was celebrated.
