Over 700 commitments to accelerate progress towards tackling water issues

From 22 to 24 March 2023, about 10,000 participants gathered at the United Nations headquarters in New York with the aim to accelerate achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 6. Therefore, the two co-hosts of this UN 2023 Water Conference, the governments of The Netherlands and Tajikistan, asked governments and organisations to make concrete commitments to the Water Action Agenda. In total, more than 700 commitments were submitted already and the call for commitments is still open.

Join the #OpenWaterData commitment and campaign

SDG 6 will not be achieved if this data are not accessible! This is why IGRAC took the initiative to submit the #OpenWaterData commitment to the Water Action Agenda, leading up to the UN 2023 Water Conference. We call upon all governments and organisations to join the commitment and all individuals to sign the petition. The #OpenWaterData campaign, follows three steps: Commit, Practice what you preach, and Pass the baton!
