Goal 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

Sustainable development cannot disregard water as a primary asset, that is accessible and safe for all. The problems associated with water are not the result of insufficient availability in the natural environment but of poor management of water as a resource, worsened by climate change that leads to frequent droughts in various areas of the world. The consequences are particularly serious for health and hygiene, but they also affect food security and therefore the ability of families to earn a livelihood.

This is a problem that needs to be addressed with particular urgency, because it is estimated that by 2050 one person in four could be affected by a long lasting and recurring shortage of drinking water.
