Water is a key ingredient in economic, environmental and human development. It is a resource of paramount importance to everyone. So it is a bitter irony that when 75% of the planet is covered in water, as many as 800 million people lack access to it in a safe and sustainable way.

But progress is being seen, and highlighted in a big way during The high level conference on the implementation of the international decade for action, "water for life", which kicked off in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.

Supported by various United Nations agencies, civil society and private sector organisations, this high level conference caps off a decade of action on water-related development, which has seen important advances in the areas of partnerships, programs and strategies for ensuring access to clean drinking water and sanitation facilities. It was attended at the highest level by the UN Secretary-General, Presidents of regional nations, ministers and other ranking government leaders.
