2005-2015 is the International Decade of Action “Water for Life”
ÁLON aims to participate in the “Water for Life” Decade by helping to promote efforts to fulfill international commitments made on water and water-related issues by 2015, placing special emphasis on the involvement of women in the lifestyle segment.
Among the “Water for Life” targets:
- Governments agreed to reduce by half the proportion of people without access to safe drinking water by 2015.
- The Millennium Declaration emphasized the need for all countries to stop the unsustainable exploitation of water resources.
- Governments added a complementary target to halve by 2015 the proportion of people lacking improved sanitation.
