Technology and SDG 6 – Clean Water, Sanitisation

Introduction and definition of SDG 6:

Sanitation, such as hand washing, made global headlines during the pandemic, yet 3 billion people lack basic hand washing facilities at home and 40% of global healthcare facilities have no access to soap and water or alcohol based hand rub.
Linked to climate changes, population, agriculture and other SDGs, the pressure on the global freshwater supplies is growing, with 700 million people expected to be displaced due to water scarcity by 2030.
