SDG 6 Clean water and sanitation

'Ensure access to water and sanitation for all' (UN). RIVM develops and provides access to knowledge about water quality and health, such as the quality of drinking water and bathing waters, as well as protecting sources of potable water. This combination of knowledge makes RIVM a unique resource in the Netherlands and in Europe. We disseminate our knowledge far and wide, thus contributing to Sustainable Development Goal 6.

RIVM develops and provides access to knowledge about water quality and health, such as the quality of drinking water and bathing waters, as well as protecting sources of potable water. We do research on chemical and microbial water quality in  drinking water, wastewater and bodies of water used for recreational purposes. In addition, we provide support to drinking water companies and to the government.

International

Our knowledge is shared all around the globe. We contribute to international capacity building: water quality monitoring and management in conjunction with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the United Nations (UN).
