About : 

  • Sponsored by United Nations Development programme, the consultations will call together the representatives of developing countries, the specialised agencies including non-governmental organisations to formulate strategies for environmentally sound and sustainable water supply and sanitation services for the next 10 years. The result of the consultation will be brought to the attention of United Nations General Assembly at its 45th session in November this year. The outcome of these deliberations and the resolution expected from the United Nations aim to stimulate Governments and communities alike to give much higher priority and resources to water supply and sanitation.
