Description
Water, Economics and the Environment

More than one billion people living on the earth today have no access to safe drinking water, and many more lack even the most basic sanitation. The UN's Millennium Development Goals are challenging policy-makers to improve on this catastrophic situation.

But who will pay for safe water and sanitation services - and what should be the role of the private sector? What are the economic and environmental implications of doing nothing? What solutions to the water crisis are advocated by the World Bank?

These are sorne of the issues discussed in this episode of World Chronicle with Jamil Saghir, Director of the Energy and Water Department at the World Bank.
