WASTE(WATER) AS A RESOURCE

Technologies, Financing and Partnerships to upscale resource recovery from wastewater to deliver on the SDGs

Key findings


The (waste)water discussions at G-STIC 2018 zoomed in on (waste)water as a resource in support of the sub-target of SDG 6.3: " .... halving the proportion of untreated wastewater and substantively increasing recycling and safe reuse globally". This sub-target translates in connecting approximately 500,000 citizens per day to some form of wastewater treatment - and do this every day between now and 2030!

G-STIC 2018 identified the priority actions to make such resource recovery a common practice at the global level and hence contribute to achieving the water treatment and reuse target of the Agenda 2030.
