Water is the source of life and a basic human right. Still as many as 748 million people lack access to clean water. This week the global water conference World Water Week will take place in Stockholm between 23-28 of August. World Water Week is an important forum for water-related issues and IAS will participate in the conference and actively meet and discuss with collaborating partners and leaders.
The 2015 theme is Water for Development and the main discussion will be on the role of water and how water-related goals can be most effectively implemented.
IAS has during 25 years been working actively with water related issues and drilled more than 5 000 boreholes to meet basic needs of target communities. Today all our water programmes are framed within an IWRM (Integrated Water Resource Management) approach.
Access to clean water saves lives in many aspects. Below you can watch a video showing how IAS work to give as many people as possible access to clean water.
