Clean Water and Sanitation – SDG 6


In 28 July 2010, through Resolution 64/292, the United Nations General Assembly explicitly recognized the human right to water and sanitation and acknowledged that clean drinking water and sanitation are essential to the realisation of all human rights.

A key issue that has been gathering momentum is how to measure human progress beyond the gross domestic product. It is clear we need to include water in the measure of a country’s progress. Water is fundamental to human progress right across the board from nutrition, maternal health, child mortality and gender equality, water plays a critical factor in the progress of these objectives and human well-being. Water plays a critically important role in food security, economic growth, resource scarcity and, of course, climate change.

Can you imagine a day in your life without clean and safe water?
