Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

Launch of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 Data Portal

During the World Water Week in Stockholm the UN-Water SDG 6 Data Portal was launched in the session ‘Looking forward to Phase 2 of SDG 6 monitoring‘ hosted earlier today.

The SDG 6 Data Portal is one of the flagship products of UN-Water’s Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6. The portal 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. 

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.
