Cameroun joined SWA in 2010. The main national coordinating bodies in the sector are the WASH Cluster set up by Prime Minister's Order, and the WASH Emergency Response Cluster with its regional branches. These groups operate on the basis of the tools prepared and adopted jointly by all actors. Their operation is governed by the policy and strategy documents and the legal framework governing the WASH sector in Cameroon.

During the drafting of different policies and strategies, the Government committed to the following, inter alia: Universal access by 2030; Rates of improved sanitation to go from 34% in 2010 to 57% in 2020; Ending open defecation by 2035; and updating of the legal-institutional framework for the sector.
