SDG6 Clean Water and Sanitation

Shifting Towards Water-Resilient Infrastructure and Sustainable Cities

Sustainable, livable cities are the way forward for the future of Asia-Pacific. The 2030 Agenda implementation urges to advance urban SDG with other SDGs, related to resilience of water infrastructure to climate change. Water (-Hazard) Resilient (Infrastructure for ) and Sustainable Cities are cities that achieve safe and adequate water supply and sanitation services based on sound water-related ecosystems, high level of water use efficiency, and a greater urban resilience to water-related disasters (here Water-Resilient Cities).

How can policy monitoring support better decision making in agrifood systems?

This international technical webinar is part of the series organized by the FAO elearning AcademyAgreenium (l’alliance de la formation et la recherche pour l'agriculture, l'alimentation, l'environnement et la santé globale), the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP) and Future Food Institute (FFI). These webinars are an opportunity for all of us to share experiences and lessons learnt, discuss challenges, and propose innovative solutions and models.

Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Nutrition and Food Systems

This MOOC addresses the necessary linkages within food systems and the importance of adopting a multi-sectoral approach to nutrition-sensitive interventions.

Monitoring Coastal and Estuarine Water Quality Using Remote Sensing and In Situ Data

This two-part, advanced webinar series is a follow-on to the training on coastal and estuarine water quality held in September 2021. It is a hands-on training with demos provided by instructors, followed by an hour of lab time for participants to use Level-1 MODIS and VIIRS data provided by the Ocean Biology DAAC (OB.DAAC) and SeaDAS and OCSSW software for deriving water quality parameters.
