Monitoring SDG6 on water and sanitation

Global workshop on monitoring SDG 6

The UN-Water Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6 organized a global workshop in November 2017 in The Hague, the Netherlands, gathering country representatives from across the world as well UN-Water Members and Partners.
The purpose of the workshop was to provide a platform for sharing experiences and reviewing results from 2016-2017 data collection efforts to establish a baseline for SDG 6, and for learning and preparing for future monitoring.
