Water in the 2030 Agenda: How can Europe act?

This publication is a Water Europe publication, jointly designed and developed with the UNESCO World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP) and is the updated version of the previous publication of Water Europe on the MDGs (“Setting the water Millennium Development Goals Research Agenda for the urban poor”, 2012).

Building on the experience acquired by coordinating the production of the “UN-Water SDG 6 Synthesis Report 2018 on Water and Sanitation”, and complemented with information coming from the latest editions of the United Nations World Water Development Report (WWDR; coordinated by WWAP on behalf of UN-Water), WWAP has presented the challenges related to water sustainability at a global level. The relation to EU priority issues like inequalities, job creation and migration has been considered throughout.

The objective of this publication is to advocate for the role that the European Union, the European Commission and the European Water Sector actors had and should continue to have, to contribute to achieving the 2030 Agenda, in particular to SDG 6 and other water-related targets.  The publication has been presented at the Water Innovation Europe 2019 “Water meets Energy, Energy meets Water”, held in Brussels in June 12-13.
