SDG Mondays: Water and Sanitation

Good morning!  Today we focus on the sixth of the United Nations' new Sustainable Development Goals:
"Ensure access to water and sanitation for all."

This goal has eight associated targets:

What do you think of this goal and its associated targets?

What can you do to help reach this goal?

It is embarrassing, but my own modern, American, "developed" city somewhat regularly has days when it fails to provide its citizens with clean drinking water and we have boil water alerts.  One thing I want to do is keep putting pressure on our local government to prioritize our infrastructure rather than new development so that this stops happening.

I also think it is important to keep an eye on corporate entities that wish to privatize water, such as the evil Nestle, and make sure they do not get to do that.
