Leaving No One Behind in Water and Sanitation: Can we measure it?

About the Event: The SDGs include a number of ‘universal’ targets for water, hunger and poverty, but what does that really mean and how are these measured in practice? There are many inequalities related to who can access and benefit from water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH services) and a major challenge is how these are measured, tracked and communicated. This is fundamental to accelerating progress in achieving SDG 6 if we really aim to leave no one behind. I will discuss how WASH inequalities have been measured to date based on infrastructure access, and describe gaps related to tracking how different groups of people benefit from WASH services. Ways for improved measurement will be proposed, going beyond the SDG targets to include a wider range of indicators, metrics and better data dis-aggregation.
