Every year at the High-level Political Forum, an annual theme helps an increased focus along with an in-depth review of a selection of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In 2018, SDG 6 on water and sanitation is one of the goals to be reviewed. To provide input to Member States on this goal, UN-Water has produced the SDG 6 Synthesis Report 2018 on Water and Sanitation. This represents a joint position from the UN family on the global status on SDG 6 and other water-related targets. The report also explores the linkages within SDG 6 targets and the interlinkages between SDG 6 and the other targets and indicators. The report builds on the baseline data on SDG 6 global indicators coming from JMP, GEMI and GLAAS.



Global baseline status of targets and indicators

This chapter provides a global baseline status for SDG 6 targets and indicators. It compiles data from the United Nations agencies contributing to the UN-Water Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6 and provides Member States with key information and an overview of the current state of water management and sanitation within SDG 6. Current rates of change and trajectories towards 2030 targets are established where sufficient data (such as those from previous monitoring during the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) period 2000–2015) are available. The chapter also highlights specific challenges associated with measuring and monitoring progress and identifies opportunities for improvement.
