This study addresses a number of key concerns of AMCOW, the European Union (EU) and other donors around the need to increase support to sanitation in order to accelerate the progress of national plans, Africawide goals, and the attainment of the MDG target on sanitation. The purpose of the study is to obtain an overview of the status of the involvement of EU Member States and the European Commission in sanitation-related activities in Africa. It is anticipated that the findings of this work will have the potential to be used for both arguing for greater priority for sanitation within the international architecture and also for individual donors to use in discussing their own Official Development Assistance (ODA). The work is complementary to the report from 2008 on mapping EU development assistance to the water sector in Africa. This earlier report had a much wider remit and as such, the Sanitation Mapping report can be considered as being supplementary to it.
