Brown bag lunch: linking SDG6 and SDG 10
In addition to the briefing, a brown bag lunch is held on the same day linking Sustainable Development Goal 6 and Sustainable Development Goal 10. Sustainable Development Goal 6 calls for water and sanitation for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive. Besides the social dimension, this as severe impacts for the economy and the environment.
Sustainable Development Goal 10 aims to reduced inequalities and will be reviewed during the 2019 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. Inequalities are demonstrated through access to water and sanitation. Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.
