Moderated: 31 August – 30 September.
Now that the 2018 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) has taken place, where SDG 6 on Water and Sanitation was reviewed, it is really time to start to think about next steps in terms of how we move forward to close the gaps that were highlighted in the SDG 6 Synthesis Report on Water and Sanitation. The purpose of this report, a joint position of the United Nations family, was to inform the discussion at the HLPF.
The SDG 6 Synthesis Report has recommendations. There has also been the entire experience of data collection and reporting over the last year to arrive at the current status of SDG 6. This experience will provide lessons learned for how to enhance and improve reporting in the future. How do we take all of this and move forward?
So, the questions to be discussed during this part of the dialogue are the following:
- How do we take forward the recommendations that have been put forth in the SDG 6 Synthesis Report and the Public Dialogue? What do we need to focus on to make the most impact in achieving SDG 6?
- How do we strengthen and improve the monitoring and review of SDG 6? How do we better illustrate the importance of this for SDG 6 implementation? How we do increase capacity to carry out monitoring and reporting to lead implementation actions? How do we build partnerships to fully utilize the wealth of data that exists?
- How can future SDG 6 Synthesis Reports on Water and Sanitation better and more effectively inform policymaking?
By answering this questionnaire (takes approximately 10 minutes), you may increase the knowledge on the main challenges your region and country are facing.
