Global Water Security Event
More than two billion people today lack access to safely managed drinking water, and nearly half the world’s population lacks access to safely managed sanitation services. In response to this growing challenge, Vice President Harris announced the launch of the White House Action Plan on Global Water Security, which outlines an innovative approach to advancing water security at home and abroad.
On June 1, 2022, MCC CEO Alice Albright provided remarks about how the agency contributes to the United States' efforts to promote access to safe and reliable water. To date, MCC has invested $2.8 billion in grant funding in the WASH and irrigation sector.
