Path To Water Sustainability Will Require Billions Of Dollars In Infrastructure Investment

LiveMint: Scaling up water sustainability
Giulio Boccaletti, managing director for Global Water at the Nature Conservancy

“…As the United Nations prepares to adopt so-called sustainable development goals (SDGs) as the post-2015 successor to the MDGs, the high-stakes business of large-scale water infrastructure should be placed front and center. … While small-scale solutions, such as dug wells, will remain an important part of efforts to ensure water security, a truly sustainable water-management path — particularly in the fast-developing countries of Latin America, Asia and Africa — will require hundreds of billions of dollars in infrastructure investment. The process of formulating the SDGs offers an ideal opportunity to begin describing such a path” (1/19).
