In 2016, the United Nations Environment Programme warned that two-thirds of the world’s population would be living in water-stressed environments by 2025 if current consumption patterns persisted, with the most-affected countries being in the Global South.
With the increasing efforts to prevent this and to achieve SDG 6 for clean water and sanitation, advanced technologies are being used to create tangible solutions for countries lacking these basic necessities.
How can the higher education sector play a role in ensuring that investment is being made responsibly and aligning with the needs of communities?
The event gathered leaders and subject experts from higher education to share research ideas and solutions to address:
How universities can help to form robust infrastructures that enable the SDG 6 targets to be met
The role of research centres and new technologies in mitigating the challenges of water sanitation and ensuring equitable distribution of water resources
The requirement for international collaboration in sharing best practices in water sanitation across different cultures and topographical climates
How improved water sanitation encourages economic growth for younger generations
The interdependency of SDG 6 and the other SDGs
The event also featured an exclusive data masterclass by THE's data team to provide exclusive insight into the metrics and methodology behind the THE Impact Rankings 2023, with a focus on SDG 6.
