Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

World Youth Parliament for Water (WYPfW)

The World Youth Parliament for Water is committed to the global improvement of water and sanitation issues. Our three primary objectives – awareness, advocacy and projects – are the core around which we organise our members. Beyond our foundational aims, our decentralised organisational structure allows for the inclusive involvement of our members to pursue the water-related issues that matter to them. As a result, our work is diverse and dynamic, covering all the indicators of SDG 6, and having a focus on youth engagement and leadership.
