World Water Day

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 9 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what plans his Department has to mark World Water Day. (320957)

The Department for International Development (DFID) will mark this important occasion by hosting an event shortly before World Water Day. During the event we will hear what action our stakeholders are taking to address the millennium development goals for water and sanitation, and how best DFID can continue to support their efforts. DFID will also seek to raise awareness of the important of access to water and sanitation for poverty reduction through our website, newsletters and the release of a new publication, reporting on the work we have done to help poor people get access to water and sanitation.
