Why Bussiness As Usual Will Not Achieve SDG6 In Lac: The Promise of Wastewater Reuse, Green Infrastructure And Small Business Around Wash

Sustainable Development Goal #6 (SDG6) includes ambitious and comprehensive targets aiming for universal coverage of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services and safe management and treatment of fecal sludge and wastewater, among others. In Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), achieving SDG6 by 2030 will require significant effort and investment: at least US$ 14 billion annually will need to be mobilized solely to cover the capital costs associated with expanding and improving services.1 Despite much progress made towards increasing improved WASH coverage in LAC, there is still much work and investment needed, and the transition from an MDG framework to that of the SDGs will likely be a sobering “reality check” for the region with respect to the true scope, quality and challenges associated with achieving universal WASH coverage and sound water resource management.
