Getting things done

Let’s talk about you and water. It keeps you alive, flushes away your waste, washes your body and grows your food. But this finite resource is scarce and under threat – affecting every part of our society, from sanitation systems and ecosystems to industry and agriculture. We are way off-track to reach Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) that promises water and sanitation for all by 2030. Commit to fighting the water and sanitation crisis and hit SDG by 2030.
