Summary progress update 2021: SDG 6 — water and sanitation for all
The UN-Water Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6 has gathered the latest country, region and world data on all the global indicators for Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, which is to ensure water and sanitation for all by 2030. In a new summary progress update, the initiative outlines where the world is lagging behind and where accelerated efforts are needed. In 2020, UN-Water’s Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6 (IMI-SDG6) collected the latest available data from nearly 200 countries on the global indicators for SDG 6, which cover various aspects of the water cycle from drinking water and sanitation to wastewater and transboundary cooperation. The result is the Summary Progress Update 2021 on SDG 6, which provides a clear snapshot of global progress towards each indicator and gives a breakdown of the status and trends at the regional and country level.
