Coordinated action to tackle the complexity and magnitude of the water and sanitation challenges is urgently needed.

The UN-Water 2030 Strategy represents a collective way forward to address the water and sanitation challenges over a ten-year period with necessary focus, urgency, effectiveness and coherence.

As the 2030 Strategy will take UN-Water to the target date for the 2030 Agenda, it has a focus on accelerating progress towards the targets of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6, which at the start of the 2030 Strategy period are alarmingly off-track, as well as other relevant global targets. Thus, the SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework, launched in 2020 as part of the Decade of Action to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals by 20302, constitutes a central element of the 2030 Strategy.

The 2030 Strategy builds on UN-Water’s 2014-2020 Strategy, Terms of Reference and mandate, and the UN-Water External Review 2018. It has been collectively developed through a consultative process including UN-Water Members, Partners and External Support Agencies.

The 2030 Strategy document presents UN-Water’s vision, mission and three lines of work, and outlines a Theory of Change through which UN-Water can fully realise its potential during the ten-year period. Lastly, it sets out how the collective success for UN-Water will look like in 2030.
