Progress on achieving SDG 6

2020 Voluntary National Review

Uzbekistan reported that 67.8% of the population was covered by centralized water supply, and the proportion of the population that complies with the safety requirements for sanitation and water services was 95.3% compared with 82.6% in 2015. By 2030, the country reportedly aims to increase coverage by centralized water supply from 67.8% of the population (in 2019) to 91.2%, increase the coverage of the population with a centralized sewage system from 15.6% to 31.4%, and improve the efficiency of cleaning wastewater from 55% to 80%. 

Uzbekistan reaffirmed its commitment to the 2030 Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals, as well as their main principle of “Leaving no one behind.” However, the country noted that problems such as weaknesses in the effectiveness of public administration, the rule of law, weak market institutions, structural imbalances in the economy, insufficient capacity to collect statistics, lack of funding, and the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic threaten to slow the country's progress in achieving the SDGs. The Government of Uzbekistan reported that it intends to accelerate progress in achieving the SDGs despite the challenges outlined above.
