Challenges Faced by India on the Way to Achieve SDG6’S Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Target

Author(s): Bich Hong Hoang, Hoang Giang Vu


The 17 interconnected Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, are intended to act as a "common blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future". Among 17 SDGs, Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 aims to “ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all” by 2030. Target 6.1 particularly concentrates on the achievement of universal and equal access to reasonably priced, safe drinking water for all. Providing and maintaining clean and affordable water drinking is a major concern of all countries in the world, particularly developing nations. Even though India has improved access to clean water significantly, a number of issues still exist that prevent this goal from being achieved. This study looks at the obstacles India must overcome to meet SDG 6's Target 6.1, including problems with access, water quality, and climate change. It also looks at institutional and policy strategies to deal with these issues and hasten the process of guaranteeing everyone has access to clean drinking water.
