UCL published research supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. (SDG 6)
Through its world-class research and teaching, and the way it operates as an institution, UCL is playing a leading role in responding to the challenges set out in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
There is a growing realisation that the world’s ongoing economic growth needs to take place while protecting the environment and addressing social inequalities. The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a framework for this sustainable development. Adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, the SDGs are an urgent call for action by all countries in a global partnership.
At UCL we are already playing a leading role in these efforts through our world-class teaching, research and distinctive cross-disciplinary approach.
This collection lists all UCL contributed published content pertaining to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6 Clean Water and Sanitation. For more information about how UCL is supporting the SDGs, visit https://www.ucl.ac.uk/sustainable-development-goals.
