SDG 6 Synthesis Report and the SDGs ©WWAP

The SDG 6 Synthesis Report 2018 provides an overview of the status of SDG 6 implementation at the global levels, as well as some comprehensive information about how SDG 6 is interlinked to other SDG targets and indicators of the Agenda 2030 and the overall sustainability challenges that nations around the world are faced with.

By summarizing the progress towards the achievement of SDG 6, this report provides Member States with the ‘big picture’ on water and sanitation issues, outlining ways to accelerate progress towards this goal. This will enable countries to develop a roadmap towards a more sustainable development, for which water is critical in many regards.


Public dialogue

From 2 May to 30 September 2018, the report and its findings are discussed in a public dialogue.

Participants focus on giving feedback on the report, the main messages and the way forward. Join the conversation!


UNESCO-WWAP facilitates both online and face-to-face trainings, inspired by the UN-Water SDG 6 Synthesis Report 2018 on Water and Sanitation. The program provides tools that can strengthen institutional capacity and the effectiveness of water governmental agencies. Moreover, it enhance countries’ capacity to deal with complex multi-sectoral and multi–disciplinary approaches in the governance of water and other natural resources. Some concrete examples of this: Data and Information regarding water management, the 'Water – Food – Energy – Environment Nexus', adapting to extreme water-related events, IWRM, and planning sustainable urban water infrastructure.
