About WSUP

WSUP is a non-profit partnership between the private sector, NGOs and research institutions focused on solving the global problem of inadequate water and sanitation in low-income urban communities. WSUP brings lasting solutions to low-income areas by working in partnership with service providers; including water utilities, local authorities and businesses, and the communities they serve. WSUP strengthens the capacity of service providers to deliver sustainable city-wide water and sanitation services, promote good hygiene and raise the environmental standards of low-income communities.

From incorporation in 2005, WSUP has grown rapidly to a £10-12m organisation and has plans for greater expansion over the next few years. It presently operates six well-developed, respected country programmes in Africa and Asia to strengthen public and private sector service providers to improve the delivery of affordable services to low-income consumers. WSUP has recently expanded its portfolio of operations to include the building and strengthening of private sector provision in urban water and sanitation services and the sale of consulting services on all aspects of low income urban WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) to disseminate learning and increase impact.
