Time To Act To Secure Sustainable Water and Sanitation for All

Today, freshwater resources and their ecosystems are being degraded and depleted at an alarming speed. With rallying population growth and urbanization, unsustainable patterns of production and consumptions, and the increasing frequency and severity of climate change-related weather events, matters are more urgent than ever.

It’s time to act, and 2015 is the year to do so. With the ongoing intergovernmental negotiations, culminating with the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals in September this year, we will set the water path for generations to come. Learn more about the process of advancing water in the post-2015 development agenda in this article, written by Dr. Joakim Harlin, Senior Water Advisor UNDP and Coordinator of the UN-Water SDG Working Group.
