Analytical Framework for Integration of Water and Sanitation SDGs and Targets Using Systems Thinking Approach

Success in achieving targets under SDG 6 on Water and Sanitation will to a large extent depend on understanding of the interdependencies with the other SDGs.

This publication presents a systems-thinking-based framework for integration of the SDG 6 targets with the 16 other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their 161 targets.

The framework was developed by a team comprised of leading water experts in the Asia- Pacific region, including an Expert Advisory Group. The framework aims to assist policy makers in designing integrated and holistic strategies and roadmaps for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SDGs by applying tools and methods based on systems thinking.
