SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation 

Introduction: SDG 6 aims to ensure everyone has access to clean water and sanitation by 2030, with further climate resilience goals by 2050. This FAQ addresses common questions about India's progress and challenges in achieving this goal.

Q1: What is the current status of clean water and sanitation in India?

A: India has made significant strides, but challenges remain. While access to basic sanitation has improved, many still lack access to safely managed sanitation. Water scarcity and pollution are major concerns, especially in rural areas and urban slums.

Q2: What are the key initiatives to achieve SDG 6 in India?

Q4: What role does technology play in achieving SDG 6 in India?

A: Technology offers solutions like wastewater treatment, rainwater harvesting, and smart water management systems. These can improve efficiency, reduce waste, and enhance resilience to climate change.

Q5: How can individuals contribute to achieving SDG 6 in India?
