This briefing considers the impact of migration on a variety of WASH-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), chiefly SDG 6: ‘to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all’. While water and sanitation do not appear to drive migration, the process of migration can radically shape access to water and sanitation services – particularly for undocumented migrants and people in transit. We question whether attaining ‘universal access’ is possible without specific measures to address the needs of refugees and other migrants.
