Ensuring sustainable management of water and sanitation for all is a major concern which should be implemented by 2030. We should put effort to achieve a universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all irrespective of the class in the society. We expect to improve the water quality by investing in abstraction of safe ground water and controlling the pollution of surface water and rain water. We expect to eliminate the dumping sites which releases harmful chemicals and materials into the water bodies through seepage process. This goal can be achieved by ensuring we use our water sustainably across all sectors, and this will address the water scarcity issues. For sustainable water management, we need an intergrated water resources management at all levels , stakeholders are also required to synergize their effort to achieve the common goal of water sustainability. Lastly we should protect our water ecosystems including the water towers, wetlands, aquifers and lakes. "Let's not say that water comes from heaven", water comes from our environment.. Let's ensure we use our water resources sustainably to achieve goal 6.
