Through acciona.org, we have provided access to safe drinking water and appropriate sanitation that is affordable and sustainable for developing communities. To do so, we seek the most appropriate solutions according to their natural resources, climatology, socioeconomic profile etc.
The work done by the Water and Sanitation area of acciona.org is directly linked to Sustainable Development Goal 6 of the 2030 Agenda: "Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all", and specifically to the targets it outlines:
- To achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all
- To achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all
Since we began these activities in Mexico over two years ago, drinking water and improved sanitation have reached six particularly isolated communities. As a result, some 400 people have seen their quality of life improve thanks to access to these basic services.
The impact of this work on the people that are benefiting from it is also helping to achieve the objectives of reducing poverty, hunger, disease and inequality, promoting education, work etc.
We have recently begun scaling up this water and sanitation initiative to benefit more people in Oaxaca, with the same purpose of promoting sustainable development, while making sure that nobody gets left behind.
