Goal 6 is one of the most interconnected goals: improving access to water sanitation and hygiene helps economic development, poverty reduction, health, and more. Support associations involved in improving access to clean water and sanitation facilities.
More than 2 billion people, mostly in developing countries, do not have access to improved sanitation facilities. Be aware that in several countries, a major contribution to water contamination is open defecation resulting from a lacking sanitation infrastructure. Search for initiatives and organisations to support sustainable sanitation practices, such as recycling human waste into soil.
Wash your hands frequently to mitigate the spread of diseases, infections, and illness, which often impact the poorest populations more gravely.
More than 200 million people worldwide are expected to be internally displaced by 2050 due to water scarcity and water conflicts. Get familiar with hydro-diplomacy issues and raise awareness among your community on the social implications of water scarcity.
Fund safe sanitation infrastructures, tools and projects such as off-grid and solar powered toilets also in developing countries.
