As freshwater ecosystems face increasing pressure, landscape approaches are key to water security and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services. This requires valuing and securing the role of wetlands in water provision and regulation. Addressing Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG6) and associated SDGs means targeting water security including ecosystem management and restoration at all governance levels. Integration involves connecting across silos for common understanding of issues and options, joint goals and collective action. This requires organisations that enable and catalyse integration. Presentation given at the IRC WASH Debate: Linking WASH and IWRM programmes to achieve SDG6, 22 November 2017, The Hague, The Netherlands.
