Flyer Poor sanitation remains one of our planet’s greatest challenges. It has a wide range of negative impacts on the social and economic development of more than 2 billion of citizens worldwide. In order to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6 “Clean Water and Sanitation”, urgent action needs to be taken by governments and by the private sector. There are many opportunities for small and large companies to develop products and solutions and be the catalyst of change in providing good sanitation for all. In this event we will show what is currently being done by actors from the civil society, the private sector and the government and where opportunities for further actions lay.
