About Ensure Availability of Clean Water & Sanitation
The COVID-19 crisis has brought to the fore the critical importance of water, sanitation, and hygiene for protecting human health. Despite progress, billions of people around the globe still lack these basic services. Immediate action to improve access to water, sanitation, and hygiene services is required to prevent infection and contain the spread of COVID-19.
Water is essential not only to health, but also to poverty reduction, food security, peace, and human rights, ecosystems, and education. Nevertheless, countries face growing challenges linked to water scarcity, water pollution, degraded water-related ecosystems, and cooperation over transboundary water basins. In addition, funding gaps and weak government systems hold many countries back from making needed advancements. Unless current rates of progress increase substantially, Goal 6 targets will not be met by 2030.
