Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.
GWP shows support on Instagram
GWP launched a new Instagram account in the lead-up to International Women's Day on 8 March. As part of this, GWP joined the global campaign #BalanceforBetter, and while this campaign continues throughout the year, the Instagram now also features GWP staff and Partners under the #LeavingNoOneBehind umbrella. With their photos, they answer the question: How is your region working to make sure that no one is left behind?
In an op-ed for IPS News agency, GWP Executive Secretary Monika Weber-Fahr writes on the topic: “Leaving no one behind is the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. That agenda includes the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), one of which – Number 6 – is about water. Part of that goal zeros in on work that has been piloted by GWP and its thousands of member organisations: integrating water resources management across all people and organisations that have a stake in water. The genius of this approach is that it has always been about inclusion."
