Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

The abundance of residual colors in the effluents discharged from textiles, tanneries, dyeing, food processing and numerous other industries across the globe, currently poses a grave threat to global environmental sustainability. Polymer enhanced ultrafiltration (PEUF) can be a cost effective and energy-efficient membrane separation process in the treatment of wastewater. This article supports SDGs 6, 12 and 14.
The #SDGBookClub helps children learn about the Sustainable Development Goals. The book club presents a selection of books for children aged 5-12 on each of the goals. Check out the books that have been selected in support of Goal 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation.

International Journal of Educational Development, Volume 70, October 2019. 

Directly contributing to SDGs 3 (Good Health and Well-being), 4 (Quality Education) and 5 (Clean Water and Sanitation), this Elsevier Atlas award winning article examines the effects of school toilet provision on the primary-school attendance rate in Kenya.

International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health, Volume 222, Issue 4, May 2019, Pages 635-644.

Focussing on SDGs 3 (Good Health and Well-being) and 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation), this Elsevier Atlas Award winning article identifies a positive effect of on-site treatment of hospital wastewater on the communal sewage system.
Solar water disinfection catalysed by metal-free photocatalyst has emerged as a promising approach for clean water production, directly contributing to SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation).

Ecological Modelling, Volume 391, Jan 2019, Pages 9-15.

This article explores SDG 7 (affordable and clean energy), SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation) and SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production). The distinctive characteristics, self-efficiency or external dependency of energy demand’s water footprint in China’s two biggest and fastest developing megalopolises are explored.
This research contributes to SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation), SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) and SDG 12 (responsible production and consumption). Using a multiple-scale socio–economic water cycling model, the impacts of water price reform, water reallocation schemes, and industrialization processes on water resources utilization are analysed in north-western China.

Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Volume 97, Dec 2018, Pages 290-300.

This article debates the practicality and benefits of comprehensive food-energy-water nexus policy approaches. Improved understandings of the nexus holds broad potential to contribute to multiple interconnected SDGs including 2 (zero hunger), 6 (clean water and sanitation), and 7 (affordable and clean energy).

Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, Volume 34, October 2018, Pages 21-25.

This paper contributes to goal 6 by calling for academics to step in and provide more realistic objectives, criteria and indicators for measuring the performance of clean water, sanitation and wastewater services. This will help to focus efforts over the lifetime of the SDGs and prevent the failings of the MDGs from being repeated.
Directly contributing to SDGs 2 (zero hunger), 6 (clean water and sanitation) and 7 (affordable and clean energy), this paper proposes a solar energy enabled desalination process for producing fresh water, electricity generation and hydrogen production.
