Fourth reporting exercise under the Protocol on Water and Health

According to article 6 of the Protocol, Parties shall set targets and target dates within two years of becoming a Party. Article 7 requires Parties to collect and evaluate data on their progress vis-à-vis achievement of the targets and on indicators designed to show how that progress has contributed towards preventing, controlling or reducing water-related disease. The objectives of the triennial summary reports are:

(a) To assess progress (self-assessment by Party and assessment by the Meeting of the Parties);
(b) To exchange experience and share lessons learned;
(c) To demonstrate the main challenges/obstacles in implementing the Protocol, thereby informing   activities under the Protocol’s programme of work;
(d) Gather harmonized information on water, sanitation and health in the pan-European region.

The summary reports submitted by all Parties to the Protocol and six other States are presented below,* as received by the secretariat and in compliance with the obligations of the Protocol (art. 7, para. 5, and art. 17, para. 1 (b)). The Regional report on the status of implementation of the Protocol and the Report of the Compliance Committee to the fifth session of the Meeting of the Parties are also available below.  

Key highlights of the fourth reporting cycle.
