A virtual SDG 6 Special Event will be hosted during the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development 2021.
The Special Event will focus on how the SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework, which was launched during HLPF 2020, can support a sustainable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic that promotes the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development, and builds an inclusive and effective path for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda in the context of the decade of action and delivery for sustainable development.
The SDG 6 Capacity Development Initiative will be launched at the Special Event. The Initiative is built on existing capacity development activities across the UN-Water family, and is co-coordinated by UN DESA and UNESCO. The SDG 6 Special Event will also review the progress to date and showcase some of the projects that have been developed around the Framework.
