Access to drinking water and sanitation is a fundamental human right. Achieving universal, adequate, and equitable access to safely managed water and sanitation services is at the core of sustainable development.

Event Details

This session is part of BritCham Shanghai’s SDG event series and focuses on SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation.

Water is essential not only to health, but also to poverty reduction, food security, peace and human rights, ecosystems and education.

The importance of good hygiene through handwashing and access to clean water has been further highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite progress over the past few decades, billions of people worldwide still lack access to clean water and sanitation, with only 10 years left to achieve SDG 6.

Therefore, at this seminar, BritCham Shanghai is delighted to bring together four speakers from different sectors to share their insights and experiences on how to ensure access to water and sanitation for all.
