Prince El Hassan Bin Talal of Jordan mobilizes action to advance global "water target"Listen /
With only a short time before the 2015 deadline to achieve the UN's Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – the water and sanitation challenges remain daunting.
The "water target" set by world leaders promised to halve the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and without basic sanitation.
His Royal Highness Prince El Hassan Bin Talal of Jordan is chair of the United Nations Secretary General's Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation (UNSGAB).
Having joined the cause for many years, he shares with UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha the progress made so far.
