The United Nations calls its 17 Sustainable Development Goals "the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." With a target of achieving them by 2030, the goals are all interconnected and address the global challenges we face.

Goal 6 is "Clean Water and Sanitation." As the UN puts it: "Clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in."
