On March 22, UN-Water and the International Institute for Sustainable Development announce a new agreement to collaborate in providing information on implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 6.
If we continue to develop on our current path, some five billion people will be living in areas with poor access to water by 2050 according to the recently launched World Water Development Report. The collaboration seeks to inform and engage actors in an effort to set the world on a different path.
International Institute for Sustainable Development, an independent think tank, reports on and organizes information on efforts to implement each of the SDGs through its SDG Knowledge Hub. The stream of information flowing into the SDG Knowledge Hub about water and sanitation projects and solutions will be enhanced through this collaboration and will incorporate linkages with the other SDGs, to ensure that water and sanitation challenges are seen within a wider context, and taken up in relationship with other Goals, and vice-versa.
