Freshwater for all – working towards realistic targets

Figure 1: Africa regional targets: annual increased access to safe water and improved sanitation required to reach those who need to be served before 2015



Note: The baseline year for the proportion referred to in the targets is 1990 and highlighted in WWDR. These targets represent an annual increase of around 20 per cent in service delivery during 2004–14. If the service delivery achieved in 2014 is then maintained or increased, the target of water for all in Africa could be met by around 2020, five years before the global deadline of 2025.
