Comments

Thank you so much for futhering the outgoing information about women's key role in sustainable development. Clean water availability is vital to women and thier families in so many urban and rural areas. The issues involving safety (as women walk, sometimes miles, to gather water), water drinkability (water source values) and general water availability need to stay in the world's focus.
We applaud this award as it brings more attention to the current issues of global water and women. We deeply support, too, all the women who are working hard today to improve conditions for women worldwide.
