The 17 SDGs, aimed at ending global poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all, cover a broad range of social and economic development issues.
Several goals relate directly to water including ensuring access to clean water and sanitation (Goal 6), climate action (Goal 13), and life below water (Goal 14), which concerns the sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources, and ensuring water quality.
Additionally, many of the other goals remain out of reach without water access and sound water management practices. These include goals to achieve zero hunger (Goal 2) and sustainable cities and communities (Goal 11). These SDGs depend on water demand being met and the impact of climate change being mitigated.
H2i plays an important role in advancing these SDGs. The services we provide that directly relate to the SDGs include:
- Water Resources Assessment
- Flood Risk Assessment
- Climate Impact Studies (related to Water Quantity and Water Quality)
- Hydropower and Tidal Energy Potential Scanning
