March 26, 2008
The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) backed the sanitation theme of World Water Day on March 22.
CIWEM used the day to highlight the fact that billions of people across the world are unable to access adequate sanitation. 2.6 billion people in the world have no reliable access to clean water.
CIWEM has also put out warnings that the UN is set to fail in the United Nations Millennium Development Goal for environmental sustainability, under which the UN has promised to improve access to clean water by 2015.
