Part of: North American Water and Environment Congress & Destructive Water


Adverse economic conditions throughout the world have resulted in a shift of priorities causing water supply and sanitation schemes to relegate down the list of adequately funded projects. Even developed countries such as the United States are finding it difficult to sustain and expand their state of the art water supply and sanitation infrastructure. This paper takes a look at the experiences and lessons of the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (IDWSSD) and advocates for the adoption of sustainable water and sanitation technologies to meet the growing demand.
