Water Report 2017
The WASH network, to which Welthungerhilfe belongs, recently published a report addressing the interdependency of the UN sustainable development goals. It states that the goals of “Zero Hunger” and “Clean Water and Sanitation” are intertwined to such an extent that they must be pursued concurrently, i.e. both are integral project components.
Clean drinking water and good hygienic conditions result in less disease, more income and livelihood stability, and improved longterm food and nutrition security. For development cooperation efforts, this means departing from established task distribution schemes and collaborating more closely with various actors.
