Access to clean drinking water and sanitation is a basic human right. The 2015 UN Goals for Sustainable Development include providing access to safe and affordable drinking water and adequate sanitation and hygiene for all by 2030. In 2016, as an endorsed project of the SDWG, professionals and government authorities and Arctic and sub-Arctic residents were surveyed to describe the current state of water and sanitation services.
The Survey was conducted from April 10 to October 1, 2016 and had 3 sections: Water and Sanitation Services, Disease Surveillance, and Climate Changes Affecting Water and Sanitation.
