Statistics on WASH sustainability and finance

Would you have some figures ( with sources) at hand on:

  • Functionality/ sustainability of water systems in Africa (urban and rural) and on sanitation (open defecation).

  • Sector financing in Africa (Donor money flows and nationally generated resources for the WASH sector? If available differentiated urban/rural. And if possible how this money is spent- how much is going into infrastructure and how much in M&O?
