The MDG target called for halving the proportion of the population without sustainable access to basic sanitation between 1990 and 2015. During the MDG period, it is estimated that use of improved sanitation facilities rose from 54 per cent to 68 per cent globally. The global MDG target of 77 per cent has therefore been missed by nine percentage points and almost 700 million people.
