Sustainable Development Goals

What are the latest global data on water-use efficiency and water stress? Join the SDG 6.4.1 and 6.4.2 indicators progress webinars!

22/09/2021 - 30/09/2021

From 22nd to 30th September 2021, FAO will hold webinars in different languages to present the latest progress and acceleration needs to meet SDG target 6.4.

Access to safe water and sanitation and sound management of freshwater ecosystems are at the very core of sustainable development. This is the aim of Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6), which includes approaches to water management supported by international cooperation, capacity building and stakeholder participation.

Within the Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG6 (IMI-SDG6) coordinated by UN-Water, FAO, as the custodian agency for the monitoring of SDG indicators under target 6.4, has developed and launched the reports that present an update of the latest consolidated data in the monitoring process of indicators 6.4.1 “change in water-use efficiency” and 6.4.2 “level of water stress”. These reports highlight data collection challenges along with some recommendations to accelerate an equitable increase in water-use efficiency and a reduction of water stress, especially in those areas that are more affected by unsustainable water use. They also provide technical experts, policymakers, regional and international organizations, and civil society, with the information needed to establish, implement and strengthen data-based policies, and offer an interpretative insight into the indicators. 

In coordination with UN-Water, FAO is organizing webinars to present these latest progress reports’ results and recommendations. That will be an opportunity to open the floor for discussion and engagement with the different stakeholders who are interested in the development and monitoring of the indicators and in the achievement of SDG target 6.4. 

Don´t miss the chance to know more about the global status of indicators 6.4.1 and 6.4.2 and feel welcome to join our webinars and share the invitation with your networks!

The webinars will be held in English, French, Spanish and Arabic in different time zones, so a wider audience can engage in the discussion.
