Water, health and dignity – Sustainable development goal 6: Clean water and sanitation
Access to drinking water, sanitation and hygiene for all people and in every place is the basis for a healthy and dignified life. That is sustainable development goal number 6 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations. Sustainability of water resources is essential for human health, the environment and economic prosperity. However, this vital resource is endangered today, and with it the rest of the living world.
Serbia is considered a country that is moderately rich in water. Most of its water wealth consists of waters that only flow through the country, and only a small part of those that spring on the territory itself. In this regard, there are areas where Serbia is good, but there are also areas where there are numerous challenges. Individuals, groups and private companies can get involved in the action to help overcome the challenges identified under the Sustainable Development Goal 6.
In addition to universal access to water, sanitation and hygiene during the webinar, we will discuss the following:
• What does water supply mean for everyone and everywhere?
• Where is Serbia in relation to the implementation of sustainable development goal 6?
• What is and why is the WAterSanitationHealth concept important?
• What are examples of successful projects in Serbia and what are their conclusions?
• What can individuals and institutions do to contribute to clean drinking water and better sanitation?
