Achieving Sustainable Development Goal 6
Learn more from Water.org’s Managing Director in India, Vedika Bhandarkar as she explains how our smart solution will help bring safe water and sanitation for all.
Affordable financing is the solution
Globally, 844 million people lack basic water service—a drinking water source that is accessible within a 30-minute round trip from their home. Even more people, 2.3 billion, do not have access to basic sanitation—a toilet or latrine that is not shared with other households.
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 6 calls for clean water and sanitation for all. According to the latest development reports, the world is not on track to achieve this goal by 2030. It will cost approximately $114 billion a year between now and 2030 to achieve the goal. The amount needed is three times more than what is currently being applied to solve the water crisis. This is where Water.org comes in. We have a solution that addresses the gap in financing. Through access to affordable financing, we can empower millions in need with safe water and sanitation.
