To enforce its Water Action Agenda, the United Nations will organize a three-day Water Conference with collaboration of Tajikistan and the Netherlands in New York today.

More than sixty five hundred delegations including a hundred ministers and a dozen heads of state and government representatives will participate in the Water Conference.

The conference is designed to deliver rapid progress on internationally-agreed water and sanitation targets, which are parts of the UN Sustainable Development Goal 6.
