Purpose Of SDGs
Clean Water and Sanitation
Clean water and proper sanitation are basic human needs. One of the points in the sustainable development goals (SDGs) in the environmental sector is to ensure that the community achieves universal access to clean water and sanitation.
The UN Secretary General appointed 27 High Level Panels in July 2012. The High Level Panel is a global partnership that aims to eradicate poverty and transform the economy through sustainable development.
The main focus is on the availability of food, clean water and energy which are the basis of life. The most important changes in sustainable consumption and production will be driven by technology, innovation, product design, detailed policy guidelines, education, and behavior change. The Panel proposed twelve Universal Goals and National Targets. The target calls on countries to “Achieving universal access in the water and sanitation sector” which is expected to be achieved by 2030.
The World Bank in 2014 warned that 780 million people do not have access to clean water and more than 2 billion people on earth do not have access to sanitation. As a result, thousands of lives are lost every day and material losses are up to 7 percent of world GDP.
Sanitation, as well as clean water, are specifically discussed in the goals of the six SDGs, although it should be noted that these goals are actually a unity.
