UN entities say post-2015 development agenda must address inequity in access to clean water, sanitation
In a joint statement, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the Special Rapporteur on the human right to safe drinking water and sanitation, urged member states on 30 October to ensure that the post-2015 development agenda addresses inequalities that prevent millions of people from getting access to basic services.

The statement emphasizes that future goals, targets and indicators should include a focus on the most marginalized and disadvantaged groups and individuals, where success can be measured in relation to the progress made in closing gaps on access to sanitation, water and hygiene, and other sectors such as access to education and immunization.
