WASH in the 2030 Agenda
Access to safe water and sanitation are human rights, as recognized in 2010 by the United Nations General Assembly. For universal fulfilment of these rights, we need the right systems: Capable of delivering services and changing behaviour in resilient and appropriate ways.
Water directly touches 7 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and moves forward other SDGs. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) at its core. The focus will be on ensuring universal availability of water and sanitation, with its sustainable management.
