World Water Week: Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Funding Drops by a Third Putting Lives at Risk, Warns WaterAid

As the doors open again for World Water Week (20-24 August) in Stockholm, leading water, health and sanitation organisation WaterAid are warning that leaders are not on track to meet the SDG on water, and sanitation and hygiene for all as funding falls – and lives are at risk.

WaterAid points out this World Water Week is roughly the midway point between the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 and their expected completion date in 2030.
