WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE FOR ALL

Improve access to safe and clean water

Water is fundamental to the existence of all forms of life. Yet, according to figures from UN Water, 2.3 billion people still live in water-stressed countries, out of which 733 million live in high and critically water-stressed countries. Furthermore, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimates that 3.2 billion people live in agricultural areas with high to very high water shortages or scarcity, of whom 1.2 billion, roughly one-sixth of the world’s population, live in severely water-constrained agricultural areas.

Water scarcity affects the entire world, but the poorer and most vulnerable communities suffer the most. Funding can leverage the transition towards sustainable development, but it must go hand-in-hand with effective governance strategies and policy making concerning water, sanitation, hygiene and health infrastructure.

Since last year’s G-STIC Conference in Dubai, international and inter-state collaboration has been brought to the table as a crucial step to resolve water challenges: water has no borders and no problem can be solved by a one-fold approach. This year, we plan to look beyond, as there can be no sustainable development without a comprehensive understanding of the complex inter-sectoral linkages between water, food and energy. Introducing research and innovation into development cooperation will help to create solutions that take into account local contexts, and provide the means of sharing lessons learnt.

The water-energy-food (WEF) nexus, also frequently referred as WEFE (water-food-energy-ecosystems), addresses the complex interlinkages across water, food and energy, highlighting its role in sustainable development.

The WEF nexus tackles long-term sustainability by finding compromises to often-competing interests, while simultaneously respecting the integrity of ecosystems. The main challenge within the WEF nexus is the connection between food and water provision powered by sustainable energy. Water use requires energy (for example, abstraction of water for irrigation, wastewater treatment, distribution of drinking water, desalination), therefore optimizing water use has the potential to reduce the energy demand. On the other hand, energy production needs water, especially where biofuels are concerned. Water is also used for cooling processes in thermal power generation, which accounts for the highest water consumption within the energy sector. Reducing water losses, and using renewable energy to decrease greenhouse gas emissions, can lead to improved food security.

During this session, the panel of experts will discuss the importance of water as the connection between food and energy and how to leverage water during the transition to renewable energy. They will also focus on ways to make the energy sector water-proof and the water sector energy-proof, as well as the connection between water and food security through agriculture.

The World Health Organization Joint Monitoring Programme estimates that more than 700 million people, primarily from the most vulnerable and poor communities, still lack basic access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6.1 (universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water) and SDG 6.2 (access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene) were created precisely to help tackle this daunting problem.

The main bottleneck in the provision of WASH is the large capital investment needed for infrastructure, operations, and maintenance, which is why transparent financing and governance practices must go hand-in-hand in such projects. Subsidization and tariffication are two strategies currently used by some developing countries where, despite the reluctance to pay, there are clear social benefits. Ideally, effective policy making concerning WASH should be coordinated with local knowledge, especially in rural and remote areas where decentralized systems are often the only feasible solution.

Better integration of research and innovation in this field and governance decision-making remains a challenge but valuable information can be gained by sharing the lessons learned from other examples of WASH projects around the world. During this session, the panel of experts will discuss ways to achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water (SDG 6.1) and access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all (SDG 6.2). They will look at the possibilities to provide a platform for youth representatives to highlight the human right to access WASH and propose strategies for international cooperation and partnerships to accelerate the realization of SDG 6.

Access to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) is a basic human right that is still lacking in many parts of the world. Peri-urban and rural areas in developing countries are particularly affected as these areas do not normally have a proper water infrastructure. When there is an infrastructure, it is often prone to failure due to limited capacity, resources and/or the political will to maintain a widely dispersed system. There are also problems with repair and maintenance, and when a system fails, it is often not repaired quickly, if repaired at all. Under these circumstances, people are forced to get water from alternative sources which can be some distance away, or even pay for it to be transported, making it unreliable and unaffordable to meet basic WASH needs.

The UN World Water Development Report 2021 highlights the fact that an integrated approach to WASH can lead to improved health, increased school attendance, greater privacy and safety especially for women, children and the most-vulnerable individuals, and provide a greater sense of dignity for all. The current frameworks to establish sustainable long-term WASH in peri-urban and rural areas revolve around the combination of technological innovations and social interventions. Quite often, the technology will be working as it should but more needs to be done to get people to use it, especially in deeply rural or marginalized areas.

This session will share the lessons learnt from successful WASH projects in peri-urban and rural areas and will highlight breakthroughs to sustainable WASH in marginalized areas. The panelists will present successful cases of sustainable WASH in South America, India and Africa.

There are also problems with repair and maintenance, and when a system fails, it is often not repaired quickly, if repaired at all. Under these circumstances, people are forced to get water from alternative sources which can be some distance away, or even pay for it to be transported, making it unreliable and unaffordable to meet basic WASH needs.

The UN World Water Development Report 2021 highlights the fact that an integrated approach to WASH can lead to improved health, increased school attendance, greater privacy and safety especially for women, children and the most-vulnerable individuals, and provide a greater sense of dignity for all. The current frameworks to establish sustainable long-term WASH in peri-urban and rural areas revolve around the combination of technological innovations and social interventions. Quite often, the technology will be working as it should but more needs to be done to get people to use it, especially in deeply rural or marginalized areas.

This session will share the lessons learnt from successful WASH projects in peri-urban and rural areas and will highlight breakthroughs to sustainable WASH in marginalized areas. The panelists will present successful cases of sustainable WASH in South America, India and Africa.

Large amounts of untreated wastewater worldwide are still released into streams and rivers, leading to contamination of these vital water supplies. According to the UN World Water Development Report 2021, only 8% of domestic and industrial wastewater is treated in low-income countries, compared with an average of 70% in high-income countries. This poses a serious threat to public health and the environment, especially in developing countries with rapidly growing populations, where the situation is likely to get worse.

Sustainable Development Goal 6.3 focusses precisely on improved water quality, wastewater treatment and safe reuse. Nonetheless, there is growing concern around emerging contaminants such as pharmaceuticals, pesticides, PFAS, and viruses. Although often present in low concentrations, the impact of these pollutants is yet unclear. Monitoring is key to assess the accumulation of pollutants, pathogens, and emerging contaminants in water. Monitoring wastewater streams is vital as these can be an indicator of the general health of a population.

Assessing the health risks around wastewater reuse is also crucial. First, this must be looked at from a technology perspective: how is research and innovation being applied to reuse as a safe and sustainable measure for climate adaptation? Secondly, the societal aspect: how do people feel about wastewater reuse? During this session, the panelists will present ways to balance the real and perceived health risks from water reuse and how to change the way people think about this.

Large amounts of untreated wastewater worldwide are still released into streams and rivers, leading to contamination of these vital water supplies. According to the UN World Water Development Report 2021, only 8% of domestic and industrial wastewater is treated in low-income countries, compared with an average of 70% in high-income countries. This poses a serious threat to public health and the environment, especially in developing countries with rapidly growing populations, where the situation is likely to get worse.

Sustainable Development Goal 6.3 focusses precisely on improved water quality, wastewater treatment and safe reuse. Nonetheless, there is growing concern around emerging contaminants such as pharmaceuticals, pesticides, PFAS, and viruses. Although often present in low concentrations, the impact of these pollutants is yet unclear. Monitoring is key to assess the accumulation of pollutants, pathogens, and emerging contaminants in water. Monitoring wastewater streams is vital as these can be an indicator of the general health of a population.

Assessing the health risks around wastewater reuse is also crucial. First, this must be looked at from a technology perspective: how is research and innovation being applied to reuse as a safe and sustainable measure for climate adaptation? Secondly, the societal aspect: how do people feel about wastewater reuse? During this session, the panelists will present ways to balance the real and perceived health risks from water reuse and how to change the way people think about this.
