SAFE WATER: THE KEYSTONE FOR ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH, ECONOMY AND SECURITY

Safe water is a critical environmental and public health issue, as well as a means to lift people out of poverty and ensure human security. The lack of access to safe water remains a problem for more than a billion people in the developing world. Annually, 2 to 3 million children less than 5 years old die of diarrheal diseases, a large proportion of which are acquired through exposure to contaminated water. And global warming is exacerbating this crisis as severe, prolonged droughts dry up water supplies in arid regions and heavy rains causes sewage overflows.

Providing safe water is an essential step for human health and development. Simple sanitation improvements, like digging pit latrines and treating drinking water with chlorine, filters and other simple, existing technologies can save millions of lives. The challenge is to put the right strategies to use in the right places, as needs vary from country to country. The long-term goal is to provide safe sources of treated drinking water and improved sanitation for all.

Myanmar is a developing country in Southeast Asia and falls into the category of least developed countries by United Nations criteria. The water infrastructure needs to be developed for the country’s further economic development. The staging of the Global Water Conference 2014 in Yangon is meant to create awareness on the importance of safe water and sanitation crisis to the country. This conference is designed to facilitate the implementation of the safe water policies and encouraging collaboration between those working on water and sanitation issues, and those working on environmental, public health, economic growth and other issues.
