FAN Global supports the End Water Poverty campaign to influence the Sanitation and Water for All Partnership to increase political will and improve aid-effectiveness by mobilizing and better targeting resources for water supply and sanitation. Civil Society has four representatives on the partnership's Steering Committee and the two southern civil society network representatives are from the FAN Global network.

The World Walks for Water is a FAN Global-supported campaign which calls on decision makers to make progress on the global water and sanitation crisis. On World Water Day in 2011, 2012 and 2013 thousands of people, including many network members, walked in solidarity with the women and children around the world who are forced to walk long distances each day just to collect water and replace somewhere to go to the toilet. At the global level, the campaign targets the commitments at the 2012 Sanitation and Water for All High Level meeting and calls for the post-2015 development framework to give sanitation and water the attention they deserve.
