Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

Integrated Monitoring

The UN-Water Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6 is a collaboration among United Nations agencies to support countries to monitor water and sanitation across sectors and to compile data to report on global progress.

The Initiative includes the work of JMP, GEMI and UN-Water GLAAS. The publications include methodologies and tools for countries to monitor SDG 6 global indicators.

 

One of the flagship products of the UN-Water Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6 is the SDG 6 Data Portal, which brings together data on all the SDG 6 global indicators and other key social, economic and environmental parameters, and tracks overall progress towards SDG 6 at global, regional and national levels: www.sdg6data.org 

The objectives of the portal are to:
  • Track overall progress towards SDG 6 at global, regional and national levels.
  • Enable assessment and analysis of the state of water resources and linkages to other sectors.
  • Raise awareness of water and sanitation issues to help catalyse action.
  • Encourage and improve SDG 6 monitoring and reporting at all levels.
  • Be an entry point to the wealth of water and sanitation information available within the UN system.
