Understanding the Role of Water in the SDGs: New Material from French Water Partnership

In 2015 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations, setting 17 goals for each country to reach by 2030. For the first time, a water goal was set which is ambitious and complete. Water is also essential to the other 16 goals. French Water Partnership (FWP) has created new material to help everyone understand the SDGs and the important role of water within each of the 17 goals. Read below to access the PDF "SDGs User Guide" as well as an infographic poster and video.
