In each of the last three years, DFID’s spending on water supply and sanitation was £180m, £184m, and £170m respectively. Due to the integrated nature of our water, sanitation and hygiene programmes, we do not report on disaggregated spend between the three sub-sectors. The estimate of funds committed to water and sanitation on Devtracker for 2018-19 is £201.5m.

Our funding for programmes is based on the amount needed to achieve the results expected. We have committed sufficient funds to meet programme requirements for the next two years.
