UCL Press’ dedicated collection to SDG6

In our network, UCL Press has separate topical collections dedicated to each Sustainable Development Goal of Agenda2030. Everyone can access free research supporting SDG6 on the SDG06 collection on Clean Water and Sanitation.

UCL Press has also created a special series on the subject, encouraging all researchers and stakeholders to participate in the discussion about water and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Submissions to the series are open to anyone and submissions may be research articles directly concerned with SDG6, or a combination of the SDGs relevant to the use of water and those focused on environmental issues (SDGs 13, 14, and 15).

Universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all

Access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene is the most basic human need for health and well-being. Billions of people will lack access to these basic services in 2030 unless progress quadruples.
