2030 Agenda – Goal 6
Ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
Objective 6 of the 2030 Agenda program aims to allow access to drinking water and basic sanitation as an essential human right.
Objective 6 includes, in addition to access to drinking water and sanitation, also further sub-objectives, for example for the protection and rehabilitation of water-related ecosystems (including mountains, forests, wetlands , rivers and lakes). The quality of the water will have to improve and water pollution must be reduced, especially that generated by dangerous chemicals. Cross-border cooperation will be encouraged in order to achieve integrated management of water resources at all levels.
Goal 6: Ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
6.1: By 2030, achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all.
6.2: By 2030, obtain access to adequate and equitable sanitation and sanitation facilities for all and put an end to outdoor defecation, paying particular attention to the needs of women and girls and to those in vulnerable situations.
6.3: Improve water quality by 2030 by eliminating landfills, reducing pollution and the release of hazardous chemicals and waste, halving the amount of untreated wastewater and significantly increasing recycling and safe reuse globally.
6.4: By 2030, considerably increase the efficiency of water use in every sector and ensure sustainable supplies and supplies of drinking water, to address water scarcity and substantially reduce the number of people who suffer from it.
6.5: Implement integrated water management at all levels by 2030, including through cross-border cooperation, in an appropriate way.
6.6: Protect and restore water-related ecosystems, including mountains, forests, swamps, rivers, aquifers and lakes by 2030.
6.a: Expand international cooperation and support to create water and sanitation related activities and programs in developing countries by 2030, including water harvesting, desalination, water efficiency, waste water treatment and recycling and reuse technologies.
6.b: Support and strengthen the participation of local communities in improving water management and sanitation.
