Water in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
In 2015, the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) covering the period from 2015-2030, thus establishing the first universal vision of the Stainable Development Agenda. Water features in the 17 priorities identified, through Goal 6 specifically dedicated to water, and 18 progress targets. The French Water Partnership conducts several activities on the issue.
