 Solutions for 'the Growing Water Challenges' to Be Found During World Water Week

Over 2,500 top experts from 140 countries will gather from August 17-23 at the 2008 World Water Week in Stockholm, Sweden, to find solutions for the growing water challenges like sanitation and hygiene.

According to a report in ENN (Environmental News Network), the conference, themed "Progress and Prospects on Water: For a Clean and Healthy World with Special Focus on Sanitation," will take place at the Stockholm International Fairs and Conference Center.

Over 200 organisations are involved as co-convenors of the event together with the Stockholm International Water Institute, and a number of new reports will be released and announcements made.

The high level panel of distinguished experts will discuss sanitation, the most critical yet under-prioritised human health and development investment in the world.

The panel will elaborate on how to better integrate sanitation and hygiene into the greater development agenda and ensure that all Millennium Development Goals be better met.

The World Water Week in Stockholm will also be the venue to celebrate those whose outstanding efforts are already improving human health and the water environment.

The Stockholm Water Prize, Stockholm Junior Water Prize, Stockholm Industry Water Award, Swedish Baltic Sea Water Award and WASH Media Awards will all be presented.
