Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

A Ten-Year Story – Dialogue and Photos

During a full day event, representatives discussed how the lessons learnt can be translated into concrete actions for sustainable water management in the new development agenda that will be negotiated this year. This is also presented in the ‘Report on the Achievements during the International Decade for Action ‘Water for Life’ 2005 -2015’ which was launched at the debate.

On this occasion, the exhibition ’Water for Life’ Photo Stories was opened. It showcases photos and messages of people who have benefited from projects to provide water and sanitation services around the world.
