SUMMARY PROGRESS UPDATE 2021 – SDG 6 – WATER AND SANITATION FOR ALL

FOREWORD

Even before COVID-19 struck, the world was off track to meet Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) – the goal of ensuring water and sanitation for all by 2030. As you will see in this summary progress report, billions of people worldwide still live without safely managed drinking water and sanitation, even though both services have long been defined as human rights. Many water sources are drying up, becoming more polluted, or both. Water-intensive industry, agriculture and energy generation are growing to meet the needs of an expanding population. Land is under greater pressure and ecosystems that provide water are disappearing. On top of this, climate change is making water more scarce and unpredictable, wreaking havoc and displacing millions of people. This report shows that we need to do more, much more quickly.

Achieving SDG 6 is a national responsibility. More than anything, politicians and policymakers at the national level need to set bolder priorities. We must make sure that decision makers are clear about the economic case: when we invest in water it has a catalytic effect on other areas such as health, education, agriculture and job creation. For national action to be effective, it needs to include all parts of society. Everyone has a role to play. Dramatic gains in water and sanitation are possible when governments, civil society, business, academia and development aid agencies pull together. And it will be essential to scale up this cooperation across countries and regions. Last year (2020), we launched the SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework, with the full backing of the United Nations family, to mobilize action across governments, civil society, the private sector and the UN to better align efforts, optimize financing and enhance capacity and governance.

Making sure that there is water and sanitation for all people, for all purposes, by 2030 will help future-proof global society against the many and varied threats coming down the line. Our immediate, shared task is to establish safe water and sanitation services in homes, schools, workplaces and health care facilities. We must increase investment in water-use efficiency, wastewater treatment, and reuse, while financing the protection of water-related ecosystems. And we must integrate our approaches, with improved governance and coordination across sectors and geographical borders.

This summary progress report makes an important contribution to one of the five accelerators in the SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework: improving data and information. Based on the latest available data for many indicators compiled during last year’s 2020 Data Drive, this document will help base decision[1]making on reliable and up-to-date evidence to ensure the greatest possible gains. The economic case for achieving SDG 6 is well known and beyond question. Ours is a battle for human health, dignity and opportunity. Thank you for reading this document and for joining this critical effort.
