Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

“Clean drinking water is a precious commodity and for many people it is not a given, but difficult to reach. 663 million people worldwide have no clean drinking water, about half of whom live in sub-Saharan Africa. The situation is even worse when it comes to basic sanitation: 2.4 billion people - about one third of the world's population - do not have the possibility to use a toilet or latrine.”


World Vision, German aid organization


What should be achieved?

  1. By 2030, achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all.
  2. By 2030, achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all and end open defecation, paying special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations.
  3. By 2030, improve water quality by reducing pollution, eliminating dumping and minimizing release of hazardous chemicals and materials, halving the proportion of untreated wastewater and substantially increasing recycling and safe reuse globally.
  4. By 2030, substantially increase water-use efficiency across all sectors and ensure sustainable withdrawals and supply of freshwater to address water scarcity and substantially reduce the number of people suffering from water scarcity.
  5. By 2030, implement integrated water resources management at all levels, including through transboundary cooperation as appropriate.
  6. By 2020, protect and restore water-related ecosystems, including mountains, forests, wetlands, rivers, aquifers and lakes.


How should the goal be achieved?

  1. By 2030, expand international cooperation and capacity-building support to developing countries in water- and sanitation-related activities and programmes, including water harvesting, desalination, water efficiency, wastewater treatment, recycling and reuse technologies.
  2. Support and strengthen the participation of local communities in improving water and sanitation management.
