New Approach to Sharing Water Data Promises Improved Water Access around the World
WASHINGTON, May 14, 2015 /3BL Media/ – Around the world, one in nine people lack access to safe water. While progress is being made, efforts have been limited by challenges in establishing a clear picture of water point access. Despite a growing trend of collecting data on water projects, there has previously been no consistent way to share this information among parties, making it difficult to fully understand the water challenges faced around the world.
Amsterdam will soon host the 5th WASH Sustainability Forum, where over 160 water, sanitation and hygiene professionals will discuss how to tackle sustainability challenges.
Sustainability is a hot topic in the development sector at large. In the water and sanitation sector, there have been a range of events, partnerships and websites dedicated to collectively recognising, understanding and addressing sustainability challenges. In March this year, for example, the Australian WASH sector organised the 'WASH for everyone, everywhere' conference in Brisbane exploring the topic in light of the post-2015 development agenda.
