Assessing the Progress of Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) in Southeast Asia

Assessing the Progress of Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) in Southeast Asia 





As we aim to achieve hashtag#SDG6 - Clean Water and Sanitation for all by 2030, understanding the regional progress across Southeast Asia is crucial. Here's a snapshot of the current state:



Access to Clean Water:



Cambodia: 79% urban and 52% rural populations have access to basic water services. (Source: UNICEF)



Vietnam: Over 95% of urban areas have access to improved water sources. (Source: World Bank)



Laos: 74% of the population has access to improved drinking water sources. (Source: UNDP)



Sanitation Facilities:



Indonesia: 61% of the population has access to basic sanitation services. (Source: WHO)



Philippines: Only 25% of the population has access to safely managed sanitation services. (Source: World Bank)



Malaysia: Nearly 92% of the population has access to basic sanitation. (Source: World Bank)



Wastewater Treatment:



Thailand: Only 55% of collected wastewater is treated. (Source: ADB)



Myanmar: Approximately 1% of wastewater is safely treated. (Source: UN)



While significant strides have been made, disparities persist. Collaborative efforts and innovative solutions are imperative to bridge these gaps and ensure no one is left behind in accessing clean water and proper sanitation.



 Let's accelerate progress together towards a sustainable future for all!
