Access to water and sanitation for all is Goal 6 of the Sustainable Development Goal’s.
The SDG’s bring a renewed commitment to achieving universal access to safe water and sanitation by 2030. Universal access means everyone, everywhere. The SDG’ call for special attention to the needs of women and girls and those in vulnerable situations.
Access to safe water and sanitation are fundamental human rights, ratified by the United Nations in 2010. This requires the principles of non-discrimintion and equality in access to water and sanitation programs and policies at all levels.
Poverty and social exclusion are closely linked and can lead to experiences of discrimination and stigma. People may be excluded from WASH efforts due to individual inequalities such as gender, ethnicity and disability; group-related inequalities such as caste or religion or geographic inequalities such as living in informal settlements or in remote/rural places.
