Development of a Sustainable Development Goal for Water: UN-Water’s role and WWAP

A set of sustainable development goals (SDG) is currently being drafted by the United Nations to take over from the Millennium Development Goals in 2016. UN-Water agreed to work on a possible SDG for water. Each thematic area (water supply, sanitation, wastewater, etc) will be represented in a working group led by UNDP which will draft a common position for UN-Water. WWAP has been selected as a member in this group, representing the past work done on indicators, monitoring and reporting.
