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.
