Abstract. Access to pure drinking water is always occupying as the centric position for long-term sustainable development for all. Although Bangladesh has improved its overall status in drinking water sector compared to 1990 scenario. In 2015, its total safe water sources reached to 87 % i.e., still 13% far from full goal achievement. Besides, it has been estimated that 22 of total 164 million population are exposed to > 50 to < 200 μg/L and 5.6 million are to > 200 μg/L respectively. Therefore, achieving sustainable drinking water goals are still challenged for Bangladesh. This study is aimed to assess the hindrance for achieving the entire sustainable development goals (SDGs) and evaluating the role of existing household based Small Arsenic Removal (SAR) technologies in drinking water sector in rural Bangladesh. The literature based evaluation is revealed that SAR technologies have been playing an important role for achieving the SDGs in drinking sectors in Bangladesh. Conversely, the lack of guild lines on their produced sludge laden and consequently improper dumping are adversely affecting the socio-economic and environmental ecosystems. In this vein, there is a framework has been developed based on the relevant studies for achieving the long-term SDGs in the drinking water sector in rural Bangladesh.

Short summary
Sustainability is a complex multi-functional approach & arsenic poisoning is a socio-political important issue for achieving SDGs in drinking sector of Bangladesh. This societal need has introduced small technologies those are helping rural poor peoples for accessing to safe drinking water. However, managing the generated arsenic-laden has been avoiding since very beginning. In this vein, this study is proposing a framework for analyzing & achieving long-term sustainability in this sector.
