Goal 6: Ensure access to water and sanitation for all

6 - Clean water and sanitation

Access to water, sanitation and hygiene is a human right, yet billions are still faced with daily challenges accessing even the most basic of services. Around 1.8 billion people globally use a source of drinking water that is fecally contaminated, and roughly 2.4 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services, such as toilets or latrines. By 2050, at least one in four people is likely to live in a country affected by chronic or recurring shortages of fresh water.

By supporting high quality carbon finance projects, businesses can deliver essential emission reductions and support low carbon sustainable development in areas most in need..

Example carbon finance project activities that aim to improve access to water and sanitation:
  • Provide improved hand washing facilities to households and schools to improve domestic hygiene and prevent disease (Target 6.2)
  • Implement water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) workshops for school children to improve hygiene and sanitation awareness (Target 6.2)
  • Distribute water filters to households, providing access to clean, safe drinking water (Target 6.1)
  • Protect and enhance water ecosystems by empowering communities to conserve and restore forested areas (Target 6.6)

Projects that align with SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation

A number of carbon finance projects support households and communities to access improved water and sanitation services, reducing incidences of illness and disease. 

Below are a sample of such projects. If you'd like to find out more about a particular project, follow the link.
