Sanitation and hygiene in focus at World Water Week`

STOCKHOLM (AFP) - As the world races to find solutions to the planet's climate woes, some 2,500 experts meet in Stockholm this week to put the spotlight on one of the most pressing issues, that of water resources, at World Water Week. The theme of this year's annual gathering is sanitation and hygiene issues. Almost half of the world's population lacks proper toilet facilities, a situation that can have dire consequences on public health and which poses a challenge to resolve since water is becoming an increasingly scarce resource.
