World Water Week in Stockholm, August 17 - 23, 2008

The World Water Week will be organized in Stockholm, August 17 - 23, 2008. The world community of water and development will meet once again in Stockholm. Topics related to the list below will be on the agenda:
  1. agriculture
  2. biodiversity
  3. sanitation
  4. climate change
  5. drinking water
  6. economics
  7. ecosystems
  8. finance
  9. governance

For a staggering 2,6 billion people, lack of access to adequate sanitation is a major and daily threat to their health and well-being. This bears tremendous social and environmental costs, of which premature deaths, degradation of living quarters and the environment, and reduced access to education are but a few.
