Opinion editorial by the Chair of UN-Water for Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week 2014

28.12.2013 -

Following UN-Water's participation in the yearly Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, an opinion editorial by the Chair of UN-Water was published in two daily regional newspapers in January - Gulf News and Al-Ittihad. "The water and energy challenge is manifold," the Chair wrote. "On the one hand, the world needs to provide adequate and sustainable access to the more than 1.3 billion people who still lack electricity and to the more than 700 million people who lack an improved water supply today — which basically means lifting the “bottom billion” out of poverty."
