Description: Target 6.3 of the WHO-UNICEF's Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) lays out clear directives for disposal, collection, treatment, and management of water resources and mandates on halving the proportion of untreated wastewater by increased recycling and safe reuse by 2030. Importance of wastewater handling and management ripples over other SDGs including that about health and well-being (SDG 3), clean water and sanitation (SDG 6), affordable and clean energy (SDG 7), sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11), life below water (SDG 14), and life on land (SDG 15), among others. In essence, issues of wastewater generation and management take into stride the foundations of human sustainability and natural ecosystem services.
