Ultrafiltration (UF) of rainwater with chlorination can produce water for potable purposes supporting SDG 6. Long-term tests demonstrate that the produced water meets the WHO standards. PV powered rainwater ultrafiltration cost ranges from 0.04 to 0.13 US$ m3. The developed technique can be implemented with economic viability even for small buildings. The technique can be a reliable alternative to traditional water supply approaches in remote areas across the world.

In China, efforts to use water more efficiently has led the increasing trend of crop irrigation water use to decelerate, a win for water sustainability. However, this study finds that since 2011, crop irrigation is increasingly using water resources considered "scarce" which is not sustainable.

This Article supports SDGs 3 and 6 by demonstrating the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of a typhoid conjugate vaccine in Malawian children aged 9 months to 12 years; this paper is relevant to World Water Day since S Typhi is transmitted by the faecal-oral route through ingestion of contaminated food and water, often resulting from inadequate hygiene and sanitation.
