Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

The 31th UN-Water Meeting convened in conjunction to the World Water Week in Stockholm

The 31th UN-Water Meeting was convened in Stockholm earlier this month, immediately prior to the World Water Week.
The UN-Water meetings bring Members and Partners together twice a year to carry out the mandate of informing policies, monitoring and reporting, and inspiring action on water and sanitation issues.

During two days, the participants of the 31st UN-Water Meeting discussed progress on and next steps for joint initiatives that UN-Water Members and Partners have undertaken to ensure that the UN is “delivering as one” to address global water challenges.

Several of the initiatives discussed contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, with particular emphasis on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6. These include the Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6, which is supported by the custodians of the SDG 6 indicators. Participants received a preview of one of the flagship products of UN-Water’s Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6, the SDG Data Portal, which was officially launched on 27 August 2019.
