This journal article addresses SDG 6 by explaining that water and sanitation remain vital for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Year 2030 seems too close for Africa to achieve SDG 6 targets. Some countries show declining trends in Water–Sanitation–Hygiene (WASH) services between 2000 and 2015, and Africa should aggressively mobilise resources to attain universal WASH services by 2030.
