This research brief from the Foundation Center is an important tool for all of us looking to increase the amount and effectiveness of funding for the global WASH sector.

And some of its key findings:
  • The total number of foundations awarding WASH grants jumped from 24 in 2003 to 78 in 2010.

  • From 2009 to 2010, 30% of all grant dollars went to Africa, the largest share of any geographic region, while 18% went to Asia and 9% went to Central/South America.
  • The largest proportion of foundation grant dollars support water sector policy and administration (20%), followed by basic drinking water supply (17%), WASH research (14%), and basic sanitation (14%).

Water recycling without purification is used in certain agricultural companies and dwellings for applications where potable water is not required. It may also be used in dwellings when the greywater is already fairly clean to begin with and/or has not been polluted with non-degradable chemicals such as non-natural soaps.

There must be proper sanitation for sources of water to prevent microbes from contaminating it.This should be given much attention to make sure that people would not be exposed to organisms that would be a reason for them to have an illness.
