Special issue on World Water event in Geneva.

World Water Day 2008 provides an opportunity to draw attention to the International Year of Sanitation 2008; a year in which the United Nations General Assembly in December 2006 has called for a focus on addressing sanitation and hygiene problems. About 2.6 billion people around the world live without access to even a toilet at home.

The International Year of Sanitation highlights 5 key messages:

· Sanitation is vital for human health

· Sanitation generates economic benefits

· Sanitation contributes to dignity and social development

· Sanitation helps the environment

· Improving sanitation is achievable!
