Sanitation and Water for All - Liveblog & webcast
Friday April 20, 2012
Between 1990 and 2010, more than 2 billion people gained access to safe drinking water, and 1.8 billion people gained access to sanitation. Today, there are still 2.5 billion people without safe sanitation and at least 780 million without safe drinking water. Sanitation is the most off-track of the Millennium Development Goals, even though it is one of the most cost-effective development interventions and has potential to make transformational impacts on economic growth and human development.
