Progress on achieving SDG 6

The Action Plan to ensuring the efficient use of water resources for the period from 2020 to 2022 was developed to assess, protect and ensure the efficient use of water resources. Its goal is also to enhance the water management accounting and delivery information system, to improve the efficient use of water by the energy sector, to ensure the efficient and rational use of water for irrigation, upgrade the drinking water supply system, and to raise awareness on the overall issue of water resources. The Action Plan also aims to identify how best to effectively finance the water resource/supply infrastructure.

The National Water Strategy Project of Azerbaijan has been drafted and work is underway to develop an action plan for the Strategy based on the completion of specific milestones until 2030 in line with the SDGs. The Strategy focuses on key challenges, such as improvements to legislation, institutional capacity, and the development of cooperation on transboundary waters in accordance with the principles of integrated water resources management. The goal is to develop a system of water resources management, protection, water supply and wastewater management in Azerbaijan that adheres to international standards.
