In embarking upon the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with a dedicated goal on water and sanitation, credible data are needed to underpin sector advocacy, stimulate political commitment, inform decision making and trigger well-placed investment towards health, environment and economic gains.

The UN-Water family is working to align, integrate and expand existing monitoring and reporting efforts to ensure a harmonised monitoring and reporting of the entire water cycle. The “Integrated monitoring of water and sanitation related SDG targets” (GEMI), complements WHO/UNICEF “Joint Monitoring Programme for Water Supply and Sanitation” (JMP) and UN-Water “Global Analysis and Assessment of Sanitation and Drinking-Water” (GLAAS), and – building on national and regional efforts – will together be able to monitor and report on global progress towards the entirety of SDG6.

One focus of the initiative in 2017 is the rollout of an *integrated* baseline process in approximately 30 countries, aiming to facilitate the monitoring in each country of a critical mass of SDG6 indicators across government departments and sectors, as well as to generate a global baseline for SDG6 that allows for integrated analysis across indicators. Participants will learn about the initial experiences of countries and supporting agencies from this process in 2017.
