AND VISION 21
The approaches and strategies presented in VISION 21 - "A shared vision for water supply, sanitation and hygiene" - (review version, 30 July 1999. Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council) are fully subscribed to by SANA. The process leading to the VISION 21 strategy started with the International Water and Sanitation Decade (1981 - 1990) during which time much, but not enough, was achieved.
The conferences held in the period 1990-1999 generated an additional wealth of information on the lessons learned, the changes required, the strategies to be adopted and the actions to be undertaken. The experiences and the many consultations among individuals all over the world resulted in VISION 21
