With 2.1 billion people – mostly in rural areas – lacking safely managed drinking water and reported low rural water supply functionality rates, the Sustainable Development Goals pose a triple challenge: to reach unserved mostly rural population groups, to raise service levels, and to sustain existing and future services. This assessment uses a multi-country case study approach to identify good practices and challenges toward building sector capacity and strengthening sustainable service delivery models for rural areas. Recognizing the limitations of the Demand Responsive Approach, the emergence of various management models, the identified need for ongoing support to rural service providers, and the critical role of enabling institutions and policies beyond the community-level, the added value of this assessment lies in: i) the development of a comprehensive analytical framework that can be used to analyze and operationalize a more sustainable service delivery approach for rural water supply; ii) the rich set of cases and good practices from the 16 countries informing the global body of "knowledge in implementation," and iii) the formulation of recommendations and policy directions to improve the sustainability of services depending on sector development stage. Policy recommendations are centered around five areas: institutional capacity, financing, asset management, water resources management, and monitoring and regulatory oversight.
Results from this report show that increased collaboration and joint initiatives between workers, civil society, producers, European importers and government institutions have enabled change in the lives of thousands of women. This synergy is now ongoing and the collaboration between these stakeholders will continue. Looking forward, there is room for local associations, government agencies, producers and importers to build on the accomplishments achieved to date. Through the leadership that they have developed throughout the course of the programme, women workers can be central to these efforts to drive long-term sustainable changes across Morocco's agriculture sector.

This document presents a two page overview of UN Women's work on economic empowerment: "Many international commitments support women's economic empowerment, including the Beijing Platform for Action, [CEDAW] and a series of [ILO] conventions on gender equality. UN Women supports women's economic empowerment in line with these, and with the growing body of evidence that shows that gender equality significantly contributes to advancing economies and sustainable development. Working with a variety of partners, our programmes promote women's ability to secure decent jobs, accumulate assets, and influence institutions and public policies determining growth and development. One critical area of focus involves advocacy to measure women's unpaid care work, and to take actions so women and men can more readily combine it with paid employment."
Le programme Moukawalati, objet de notre recherche, vise à lutter contre le chômage des jeunes au Maroc à travers la promotion de l'esprit d'entreprise et l'amélioration du climat des affaires. À la lumière des résultats de notre étude quantitative et qualitative, il apparaît que l'impact de ce programme est extrêmement faible. D'où la formulation de plusieurs recommandations pour promouvoir l'autoemploi des jeunes au moyen de la création de micros et petites entreprises viables.

This publication explores how shifts in the sociopolitical environment in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia manifested themselves in the philanthropic realm during an uncertain mid-point in the transitions. To what extent have both institutional and informal philanthropy evolved to keep up with the pace of escalating needs and expectations of the people? As those shifts continue in all three countries, with variations to be explored in each country chapter, the report encourages actors in the sector to take bolder steps from diagnostics to action.
