The JMP has published a thematic report, describing plans for monitoring ‘safely managed drinking water services’, the global indicator for SDG Target 6.1 on drinking water.
The first section of the report examines the SDG vision for universal access and the specific language used in the formulation of global targets. New ‘ladders’ for monitoring drinking water services at home, at school and in health facilities are presented, together with proposals for enhanced monitoring of inequalities and affordability.
The second section examines the availability of data on the different elements of safely managed drinking water services and discusses challenges associated with combining data from different sources to track the progressive elimination of inequalities and global progress towards the SDG target.
