In the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)-6, the government of Nepal (GoN) proposed specific targets for the year 2030, including basic water supply coverage for 99 percent of homes and piped water delivery and improved sanitation for at least 90 and 95 percent of households, respectively. Other goals include providing access to hygienic latrines to 98 percent of the population.

- Sanitation, sanitation systems, and sanitation technologies
- Sanitation program planning, implementation, and monitoring
