The Contribution of Household Water Treatment to the Sustainable Development Goals

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

HWTS also makes significant contributions to the advancement of other SDGs. Similarly, there is growing use of HWTS technologies in institutions such as schools and health centres as point-of-use (PoU) treatment providing further contributions to the goals. This resource highlight the contribution of household water treatment and PoU to a range of sustainable development goals.
