image of Introduction

The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) - World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Europe Protocol on Water and Health to the Convention on the Protection and Use of Transboundary Watercourses and International Lakes (hereafter “the Protocol”) is a legally binding instrument available to countries in the pan-European region. It aims to achieve an adequate supply of safe drinking water and sanitation for everyone and effectively protect water resources. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda) is a global commitment, which provides significant policy stimulus towards attaining integrated goals for sustainable development, including reaching universal and equitable access to safely managed water and sanitation, and good health and well-being for all. With many synergies and common characteristics, it is natural to implement the Protocol and the targets of the 2030 Agenda related to water, sanitation and health in an integrated way to support their effective implementation at the country level and to avoid duplication of efforts.
