In this interactive dialogue, panelists discuss the intersection of the human right to water and sanitation and water justice with poverty eradication, gender equality, hunger eradication, good health, climate action, and sustainable communities.
The speakers address the cross-cutting and multidimensional nature of this vital life source and its foundational role in the realization of all human rights. Their diverse perspectives offer an opportunity to envisage a just, rights-based implementation of SDG 6 and its implications for sustainable development as a whole. Additionally, panelists identify and analyze several development implementation pitfalls that are currently threatening the viability of the 2030 Agenda, the well- being of the world’s peoples, and the habitability of the planet.
