“Ethiopia is working on the  Goal 6 targets on water quality and pollution, efficient water use across sectors, integrated water resources including transboundary management, restoration of water related ecosystem areas. We also put great value to water as crucial resource, enable and constraint for other SDGs such as on Goal 1 on poverty. Goal 2 of agricultural productivity and nutrition, Goal 3 on ensuring healthy lives and promoting wellbeing, and so on. In fact there is no single SDG where water goal does not play pivotal role.”
