Billions of people are still living without safely managed water and sanitation. Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 is to ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all by 2030. Achieving SDG 6 is integral to the success of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which aims to end extreme poverty and protect the planet.

It is part of the UN Secretary-General’s Decade of Action to deliver the SDGs by 2030. Action is driven by five accelerators: financing; data and information; capacity development; innovation; and, governance.
