The Future of Sanitation and Hygiene - Key Contributors to Resilience
by German WASH Network & SuSanA

The 2030 Agenda is facing its mid-term and the challenges under SDG 6 continue to be enormous. The Sanitation and Hygiene targets 6.2 and 6.3 are most lagging behind, with 3.6 billion people or 46% of the world’s population not having access to safely managed sanitation services. Still about 80% of the world’s wastewater is discharged untreated into water bodies. The issue deserves urgent attention, as children, women and the most marginalised are most affected from this lasting crisis. While the world needs to quadruple the current rate of progress to reach the SDG 6.2 target, the political will to make sanitation a priority is still missing. High need meets limited demand, due to a lack of knowledge and awareness in the affected population and the prevailing taboo amongst decision makers. The COVID-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on the importance of strengthening of global health, including WASH. However, in times of multiple crises and increasing fragility, even more effort is required to sustain – let alone increase – the much-needed momentum for SDG 6.2. Germany has been a substantial contributor to progress in the sanitation sector, including the initiation of the respective MDG target, the adoption of the human rights on water and sanitation and its substantial contributions to the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance, just to name a few. The new German Government has decided to expand its commitment to WASH, in line with its priorities of global health, food and nutrition security, gender equality and inclusion and climate resilience. For this reason, we would like to invite you to an informed discussion on how the German WASH Network and Germany can lead the way towards 2030 as a champion for sanitation and hygiene, making a significant contribution to achieving the SDGs.
