Public digital conversations can offer valuable insight into how issues are being covered and discussed in online news and social platforms. This study compiles over one million news articles, blog posts and tweets that reference water and sanitation issues from October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017 in Spanish, English and Portuguese. The analysis seeks to uncover trends, key topic areas, and patterns in public conversations particularly around the Sustainable Development Goals to guide actors working on communications around water and sanitation, particularly in an international development context.
