The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme provides front-line assistance to grassroots communities in getting access to clean water, a resource central to sustainable development and poverty reduction.

UN Volunteers are active in many priority areas on which the International Year of Water Cooperation has been focusing the world’s attention.

Furthermore, UNV engages in joint operations with UN agencies in order to meet challenges in providing drinking water and sanitation in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
