SDG 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

Tourism can play a critical role in ensuring the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation. In line with the Sustainable Development Goals, requiring tourism businesses to invest in the provision of utilities can make the difference in achieving water access and security, as well as hygiene and sanitation, for all. ⠀

Besides utility provision, the efficient use of water in tourism, pollution control and technology efficiency can be key to safeguarding this most valuable resource.⠀

Other initiatives that can support the access to and protection of water are the use of new equipment and technologies as well as regulated standards and certifications. Community involvement plays a major role too, in combination with prevention programs for security and health.
