Key Messages

  • Migration isn’t driven by a lack of water and sanitation services, but providing services can support
    successful migration.
  • The barriers faced by migrants make achieving the SDGs’ ambitions of universal access more challenging.
  • Challenges stem from failures in governance, not the amount of water available, numbers of migrants or rates of migration.
  • The poor visibility of migrants in data limits understanding of their needs and reduces the accountability of governments and service providers.
