WaterPriorities.com is a part of the 17Goals1Future movement which supports the United Nations sustainable development goals.
WaterPriorities.com supports the sixth sustainable development goal: ensure access to water and sanitation for all. Clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in and there is sufficient fresh water on the planet to achieve this. However, due to bad economics or poor infrastructure, millions of people including children die every year from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene.
Water scarcity, poor water quality and inadequate sanitation negatively impact food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities for poor families across the world. At the current time, more than 2 billion people are living with the risk of reduced access to freshwater resources and by 2050, at least one in four people is likely to live in a country affected by chronic or recurring shortages of fresh water.
17Goals1Future community strives to create a better world for everyone. It acknowledges that we must all work together to create a better future and gives a framework for individuals and businesses to get involved and help solve the challenges of our time.
