Goal 6: 4. Main Eurostat Indicators

Key trends in “Clean water and Sanitation” in the European Union show the following evidence (Eurostat Report, pp. 131 and ss):

  • The vast majority of EU citizens have access to basic sanitation and are connected to secondary wastewater treatment;
  • Differences between Member States exist with regards to levels of access to water services and sanitation;
  • Improved wastewater treatment leading to declining biochemical oxygen demand values in European rivers;
  • Vast majority of inland and coastal bathing waters show ‘excellent’ bathing water quality;
  • Water stress is low in most EU countries, but still high in a few.

 

Goal 6’s attainment is monitored through the following main indicators: Source: EU SDG Indicator set 2020:
