Slovak National Consultation Dialogue on SDG 6

Global Water Partnership Slovakia and UNESCO Chair on Sustainable Development and Ecological Awareness, Technical University in Zvolen, Slovakia organise a Conference and National Consultation Dialogue on the SDGs on 23-24 October 2017 in Zvolen, Slovakia.

The Fifth International Scientific Conference on Aspects of the integrated environmental management and the National Consultation Workshop on Sustainable Development Goal 6 (Water) are held under the patronage of the Slovak Ministry of Environment. 

The goal of the consultation workshop is to discuss and validate Country Questionnaire for Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicator 6.5.1 among a wide range of stakeholders. The SDG 6.5.1 indicator deals with a degree of integrated water resources management implementation.

The workshop is a part of the global implementation of SDG 6 monitoring – the 2017 baseline process. Slovakia, among other UN pilot countries, has been involved in the baseline process, coordinated by the UN-Water in 2017.

 The workshop has been supported by the UNEP-DHI that supports countries in monitoring and reporting on SDG 6, including target 6.5.

The goal of the 6.5 target is to implement integrated water resources management at all levels, including through transboundary cooperation by 2030. The target supports the equitable and efficient use of water resources, which is essential for social and economic development, as well as environmental sustainability.

 Registrations are to be sent to Ms. Danka Thalmeinerova, PhD at danka.thalmeinerova@gwp.org by 13 October 2017.
