Dear all
If you have not been involved in the post 2015 process on developing Goals Target and Indicators for future Development Goals this now a brilliant opportunity and you have to react with urgency- UN has launched the Webpage the World We Want and the consultation for the "watergoal " is in full swing. There is a global Watergoal outline
Water-secure World Challenge
100% access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation
#All wastewater is adequately treated before discharged into the (aquatic) environment
#INcreased by 50% water effeciency in agriculture and communal water supply
#All countries managing their water resources sustainably based on IWRM plan
#All 276 transboundary bsains have legal frameworks

The discussion is ongoing www.worldwewant2015.org/water
And you can contribute after your own capacities
Stay well

Post2015: Share your solutions for water, energy, and food security

This week, IUCN and the International Water Association (IWA) host an online consultation session on Infrastructure Solutions for the Water-Energy-Food Security Nexus.

As part of the UN's 'The World We Want' initiative, the consultation platform allows everyone to have their say on development issues post 2015, from 11-17 March with a particular focus on water, energy and food.

The post 2015 water consultation has so far highlighted the need for development goals centred around water. The close interaction between water, energy and food - the nexus – is certainly part of that thinking. For example, increasing irrigation for food production, reduces the water flow left for energy generation (hydropower) and natural ecosystems and their services downstream (biodiversity).

The three elements; water, energy and food, are all inextricably linked, and so is their security.

By 2050, to feed a global population of 9 billion people we will need 70% more food. To ensure needs are met, engineered infrastructure, including dams, embankments, and wastewater systems are needed, but also well functioning natural infrastructure, such as healthy rivers, wetlands and forested hill slopes.

Addressing the competing needs for the water, energy and food nexus means exploring opportunities to optimize water infrastructure and technology to help shape and achieve the Post 2015 Development agenda.

You can join the discussion, participate in a poll, watch videos and more... by visiting the website www.worldwewant2015.org/water.

Dear all

In the beginning of June the High Level Panel on Sustainable Development Goals was handed of the UN General Secretary;“A New Global Partnership: Eradicate Poverty and Transform Economies through Sustainable Development

www.post2015hlp.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/UN-Report.pdf

The vision of the High level panel and its responsibility " is to end extreme poverty in all its forms in the context of sustainable development and to have in place the building blocks of sustained prosperity for all.”

The report is really interesting and bring forward important features for global collaboration aiming at a more sustainable development.
E.g for the first time ever Waste Water has entered the global development agenda and several SuSanA partners have been active aand contributed in this process . This report is now in circulation and will be commented on. This is a very important document and process where SuSanA would be able to play an important role commenting the report and contribute to the global dialogue on Sustainable Development.In essence it is also a guiding report for future challenge for SuSanA, as the MDGs has been and will continue to be up to 2015.
Therefor it is important to continue the participation in the formulation of future goals and targets and it would be truly interesting to hear some comments and immediate reflections from the forum members to this report.

All the best
Madeleine

We (e.g. UWASNET) recently analyzed the new proposed WASH goals and feel that the sanitation targets are a bit underwhelming if you look at the indicators in more detail.

The new targets of only focusing on improved sanitation in schools & work-places and the "end of pipe" solution for urban and industrial treatment, might somewhat "realistic" in face of the failure of the MDG targets in sanitation, but I find them very uninspiring and also not really solving the main issues.
Much more focus should be put to improve the general hygienic surroundings of human settlements, instead of picking out some easy to reach point targets that have probably little overall effect.
The only interesting part (in regards to sanitation) is the "end open defecation" part, but here I must say that this goal is impossible to reach to 100% (maybe on paper, but I don't think we should have paper targets).

Edit: Reason for the impossibility of reaching 100% ODF: think of the typical live-style of a pastoralist community in a developing country and you will see that you might convince them to use a toilet when it is convenient (e.g. in the mornings and evenings and/or when they are near their homesteads), but it will be impossible to make them stop OD completely. And besides, there isn't a huge difference between only having a lot of animal feces around and adding some human feces to that mix. Here the goal should be on reducing OD behavior and increasing overall environmental hygiene also in regards to animal feces.

Dear Madeleine,

It is a interesting and useful document. Is there a similar report in respect of sanitation? Thank you

I plan to set up a small farmers' union aiming at setting up a good example of sustainable agriculture with these goals.


It is a big step forward after so many years Ecosan researches by all of you. These goals will replace many meaningless wordings about sustainable development.

The UN Global Compact has developed an issue briefing series which addresses the Post-2015 Development Agenda and corresponding sustainable development goals.

There are ten papers, released April 10, 2014, including one on water and sanitation , which look into different priority issues, which were identified by consultations with LEAD companies and stakeholders.

The briefs can be found here: www.unglobalcompact.org/news/931-04-10-2014

The Water and Sanitation brief is also saved as a PDF here, below.

The SDG target for water & sanitation is being discussed at UN on 6 May - sustainabledevelopment.un.org/owg11.html

There has been a whole series of stakeholder discussions and now it is up to the Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals to submit their recommendations to the UN General Assembly by September 2014. After the May meeting, there will be be two more OWG sessions in June and July.

There has been broad support for a dedicated water SDG and the specific target being discussed on 6 May is shown below (note that hygiene has been included after pressure from WaterAid, EWP and other groups):

Focus area 6. Water and sanitation

Water and sanitation for a sustainable world

a) by 2030, provide universal access to safe and affordable drinking water, sanitation and hygiene[44], especially for women and girls[45]

b) by 2030, improve wastewater management, recycling and reuse by x%[46]

c) by 2030, improve water-use efficiency[47] by x% in all sectors, with particular focus on agriculture [48]

d) implement integrated water resource management, including appropriate trans-boundary co-operation[49]

e) by 2030, bring fresh water extraction in line with sustainable supply, protect and restore ecosystems, to provide water-related services [50]

f) by 2030, significantly improve water quality, eliminate pollution and dumping of toxic materials in water bodies, and protect aquifers [51]

g) invest in water harvesting and storage technologies, and double the rainwater harvested by 2030[52]

h) decrease by x% mortality and serious injuries, and decrease economic losses caused by water-related disasters, by 2030 [53]

Appropriate means of implementation

The numbers in brackets refer to the country and stakeholder groups that support the specifc sub-target, as listed in the OWG working document.

An update on the discussion on the SDG target for water & sanitation:

A group of 77 NGOs led by the Mining Working Group and including Biofuel Watch, Blue Planet Project, Corporate Accountability International and the End Water Poverty Coalition, have signed a letter of protest accusing the UN Open Working Group (OPW) on SDGs of bypassing water and sanitation as a basic human right.

The new SDGs are expected to be adopted at a summit meeting of world leaders in September 2015.

Read more in the IPS article by Thalif Deen on "U.N.’s Post-2015 Agenda Skips the Right to Water and Sanitation", 6 May 2014.
