Are Women meaningfully involved in implementing SDG 6+ in the national plans?

As far back as 1992, the third Dublin principle has been confirmed in multiple declarations and policies, starting with the Johannesburg Action Agenda all the way to the latest development at global level - a dedicated SDG5 with its targets on women’s empowerment. Implementation however is lagging behind: in many countries, essential services on which millions of women and girls depend such as access to water and sanitation, are chronically underfunded, of poor quality or simply unavailable.

Agenda 2030 and the SDGs give unique guidance both on women’s empowerment (SDG5) and the importance of “water and sanitation” (SDG 6) and the connection between the two.
