Some 783 million people today still have no access to drinking water and more than 2 billion people don’t have basic sanitation. Access to waste treatment is also a major concern for developing countries. In every corner of the globe, the FONDS SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT INITIATIVES supports NGOs and specialized institutions to:
• provide access to water and sanitation;
• improve access to waste treatment;
• develop and boost the skills of managers in urban water and sanitation services in developing countries.
Three years of support for NGOs and specialized institutions
Founded in 2008, the SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT Water For All Fund was set up to support access-to-essential-services initiatives for a period of three years. In 2011, the FONDS SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT INITIATIVES took over the commitments of the SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT Water For All Foundation. Launching the Shared Knowledges website was an innovating and interactive way to report on three years’ worth of projects. The Shared Knowledges website was designed by the Doing Good Doing company and produced by What’s Up Films. It blends images by the director Alexandre Dereims and a website designed by Cellules Studio.
