WOOSH is committed to achieving Goal 6 of the Sustainable Development Goals

Clean water for all

WOOSH is committed to achieving Goal 6 of the Sustainable Development Goals blueprint for better and more sustainable future for all. WOOSH is committed to SDG 6.3: Water Quality and SDG 6.1 & 6.2: Increase Access to Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene.

By 2030, improve water quality by reducing pollution, eliminating dumping and minimizing release of hazardous chemicals and materials, halving the proportion of untreated wastewater and substantially increasing recycling and safe reuse globally.

Water Quality

Waste discharge or surface runoff from urban, industrial, or agricultural areas can degrade the quality of surface or ground water vital for human needs, ecosystem needs, and business operations. Effluent management is a way of reducing water quality impacts at a system or catchment level. Actions include managing effluent from the source prior to discharge, developing waste treatment and water reclamation systems, protecting affected aquatic ecosystems, supporting water sanitation projects, or providing financial resources for waste treatment. 

Improving affordable access to water and sanitation through the construction of wells, toilets, rainwater harvesting systems and other small-scale water systems

Increase Access to Water, Sanitation, Hygiene

Improving affordable access to water and sanitation through the construction of wells, toilets, rainwater harvesting systems and other small-scale water systems, restoration of drinking water sources, or engaging in awareness and education initiatives that promote good hygiene practices.

Increase Access to Water, Sanitation, Hygiene

Access to safe drinking water, basic sanitation, and improved hygiene has a major impact on human health, education, economic development, women empowerment, and ecosystem quality. Engaging in WASH issues with local communities through improving physical access and/or supporting behavioural change can lead to decreased disease, better health, poverty reduction, and new opportunities for growth.
