A healthy link: The Protocol on Water and Health and the Sustainable Development Goals

Water, sanitation and health are at the core of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The 1999 Protocol on Water and Health is a powerful tool to promote and operationalize the achievement of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals. With its strong integrated and intersectoral approach, its focus on prevention and on the whole water cycle and its attention to safety and equity aspects, the Protocol’s provisions and principles fully align with SDG 6 “clean water and sanitation”, SDG 3 “good health and well-being” and other water, sanitation and health related targets.

The Protocol’s planning and accountability approach offers a practical framework for Parties to translate the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda into specific national targets and action addressing the key underlying challenges of the sustainable development such as weak governance, intersectoral cooperation and capacity.

The present brochure provides an insight on the linkages between the Protocol and the 2030 Agenda and outlines how the Protocol mechanisms and tools can support countries in achieving the water, sanitation and health related SDGs.

Good Practice Guidelines for Water Data Management Policy

During the 28th UN-Water Meeting, the Good Practice Guidelines for Water Data Management Policy has been officially launched.

These Guidelines are intended to be used by officers responsible for formulating and implementing government strategy to improve water information, with the aim of advancing water policy, planning, management and operations. The Guidelines were prepared under the World Water Data Initiative, on behalf of the United Nations and World Bank High Level Panel on Water.

Inter-agency Task Force on Financing for Development

Financing for Development: Progress and Prospects

“Financing for Development: Progress and Prospects,” the 2018 comprehensive annual progress report on how to finance the Sustainable Development Goals was recently launched. The report is written by the Inter-agency Task Force on Financing for Development and issued under the auspices of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, by mandate from the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.

The 2018 report provides policy options which, if implemented, would put the world on a sustained and sustainable growth and development path. It also examines the financing challenges to the SDGs under in-depth review in 2018 to help assess progress in the means of implementation for goals on water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, sustainable cities and communities, sustainable production and consumption, and terrestrial ecosystems.

World Water Development Report 2018: Nature-based Solutions for Water

The global demand for water has been increasing at a rate of about 1% per year over the past decades as a function of population growth, economic development and changing consumption patterns, among other factors, and it will continue to grow significantly over the foreseeable future. Industrial and domestic demand for water will increase much faster than agricultural demand, although agriculture will remain the largest user overall. The vast majority of the growth in demand for water will occur in countries with developing or emerging economies.At the same time, the global water cycle is intensifying due to climate change, with wetter regions generally becoming wetter and drier regions becoming even drier. Other global changes (e.g., urbanisation, de‐forestation, intensification of agriculture) add to these challenges.

The United Nations World Water Development Report, Nature-based Solutions for Water, launched 19 March 2018 during the 8th World Water Forum, and in conjunction to the World Water Day, demonstrates how nature‐based solutions (NBS) offer a vital means of moving beyond business‐as‐usual to address many of the world’s water challenges while simultaneously delivering additional benefits vital to all aspects of sustainable development.

NBS use or mimic natural processes to enhance water availability (e.g., soil moisture retention, groundwater recharge), improve water quality (e.g., natural and constructed wetlands, riparian buffer strips), and reduce risks associated with water‐related disasters and climate change (e.g., floodplain restoration, green roofs).Currently, water management remains heavily dominated by traditional, human‐built (i.e. ‘grey’) infrastructure and the enormous potential for NBS remains under‐utilized. NBS include green infrastructure that can substitute, augment or work in parallel with grey infrastructure in a cost‐effective manner. The goal is to find the most appropriate blend of green and grey investments to maximize benefits and system efficiency while minimizing costs and trade‐offs.
