Safe Drinking Water and the Global Development Agenda

This technical brief defines safe drinking water and describes why it is necessary. It discusses some of the most important global goals, declarations, and approaches that have influenced the global agenda for safe drinking water (for example, Millennium Development Goals, water safety planning, the human right to water, and the Sustainable Development Goals). It also briefly describes how household water treatment and safe storage (HWTS) can contribute to the global agenda for safe drinking water.
