SDG 6 Progress Reports

Progress reports are critical tools in our work to achieve SDG 6. High-quality data helps policy-and decision-makers identify challenges and opportunities, set priorities for more effective and efficient implementation, communicate progress and ensure accountability, and generate political, public and private sector support for further investment.

On this page you find the latest available progress updates on all SDG 6 global indicators, as well as synthesized analysis of overall progress and acceleration needs to achieve SDG 6 by 2030. The reports are primarily based on official national data sources.

Progress reports on specific SDG 6 indicators are produced by the respective UN custodian agencies, on behalf of and in affiliation with UN-Water and as part of the work of the Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6 (IMI-SDG6). This includes the reports from the WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (JMP) and the UN-Water Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water (GLAAS).

Synthesis reports and summary updates are produced by UN-Water to provide executive updates on progress towards all of SDG 6 and identify priority areas for acceleration, in support of global policy processes.
