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.

Progress on drinking water, sanitation and hygiene: 2017 update and Sustainable Development Goal baselines

Some 3 in 10 people worldwide, or 2.1 billion, lack access to safe, readily available water at home, and 6 in 10, or 4.5 billion, lack safely managed sanitation, according to a new report by WHO and UNICEF.

The Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) report, Progress on drinking water, sanitation and hygiene: 2017 update and Sustainable Development Goal baselines, presents the first global assessment of “safely managed” drinking water and sanitation services. The overriding conclusion is that too many people still lack access, particularly in rural areas.

“Safe water, sanitation and hygiene at home should not be a privilege of only those who are rich or live in urban centres,” says Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General. “These are some of the most basic requirements for human health, and all countries have a responsibility to ensure that everyone can access them.”

Special audit report - Implementing the Drinking Water Directive: water quality and access to it improved in Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania, but investment needs remain substantial

The audit report assess whether EU actions improved the safe access of citizens to quality drinking water in Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania. In particular, it examines whether (i) the requirements of the Drinking Water Directive have been met; (ii) the examined ERDF/CF-funded projects improved the quality of drinking water and the access to its supply; and (iii) the revenues generated and the additional national public funding are adequate to ensure the maintenance and sustainability of the EU-funded investments in drinking water supply infrastructure.
