1. What is the Water Action Agenda?

The Water Action Agenda is a global initiative led by the United Nations to address water scarcity and promote sustainable water management practices. Its aim is to achieve access to safe drinking water and sanitation services for all.

The initiative involves partnerships with governments, communities, and organizations at different levels to improve water conservation, restore water resources, and promote water-efficient practices.

The Water Action Agenda aligns with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6, which seeks to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for everyone by 2030.
