Goal 06:

Clean Water and Sanitation 


Water is our fundamental source of life. Yet globally, about 2 billion people don’t have access to clean H2O. They’re travelling miles to get it or drinking water that is contaminated with human waste, harmful chemicals and other toxic elements. It’s not only bad for human health, but it also impacts countries’ economies and people’s future. Goal 6 is all about providing Clean Water and Sanitation for all. Through the sustainable management of water and sanitation, together we can make sure no-one is denied access to our most vital source of life.

The UN’s SubGoals for Clean water and sanitation

  • End open defecation and provide access to sanitation and hygiene
  • Improve water quality, wastewater treatment and safe reuse
  • Increase water-use efficiency and ensure freshwater supplies
  • Implement integrated water resources management
  • Protect and restore water-related ecosystems
  • Expand water and sanitation support to developing countries
  • Support local engagement in water and sanitation management

How you can help

1

Don't overuse water. Close the tap when washing dishes, take short showers and consider getting a water meter to be aware of your water usage.

2

Lend your voice to raise awareness about the lack of hygiene, toilets and safe water in many communities around the world.

3

Organise a rivers and ocean clean-up mission. Engage your whole community to come together and pick up litter and waste in local rivers, seasides or oceans.
