Towards Sanitation and Water for All

Christopher Walsh's picture

We hope you can tune in live tomorrow, April 20 at 2 p.m. EDT, as government ministers from 40 developing countries are meeting with UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake, UK International Development Secretary of State Andrew Mitchell, Chair of the United Nations Secretary General’s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation His Royal Highness the Prince of Orange, and major donors and water and sanitation sector organizations, to discuss speeding up global access to water and sanitation.

Today, there are 2.5 billion people without sanitation and 783 million without safe drinking water. The 2012 Sanitation and Water for All High Level Meeting is convened by UNICEF and hosted by the World Bank and Water and Sanitation Program. In addition to the webcast, I will also live blog and Tweet #SW4All #wblive so viewers have the opportunity to provide comments. Hope to see you online!
