The Sustainable Development Goals

The SDGs seek to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure peace and prosperity for all. One of the highlights of the transition from the MDGs to the SDGs was the effort to embrace a holistic approach to the provision of water and sanitation services within the framework of sustainable ecosystem management. This is reflected in the targets for the SDGs that regard access to water and sanitation not only as rights, but also as ecosystem services that must be sustained through generations. SDG 6 thus seeks to “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”. This is reflected in the range of indicators that go from access to improved sanitation facilities, protection of ecosystems, and increasing efficiency through to participatory planning and management at all levels.
