The Cooperation Fund for Water and Sanitation in 2021

Despite this, the Cooperation Fund for Water and Sanitation pushed ahead with active programmes -that had been slowed down by the health situation-, and began planning and implementing projects that were approved in 2020 to address the pandemic.
