WaterAid and the Global Goals

At the UN General Assembly in September 2015, member states decided on a set of new ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs) or 'Global Goals' for the world to work towards to end extreme poverty by 2030. 

The new Global Goals include a dedicated goal for water and sanitation to tackle the crisis head on.

We believe it is possible to end extreme poverty by 2030 and ensure sustainable development only by achieving universal access to water, sanitation and hygiene.
