There is an overwhelming consensus on the great value of good sanitation for individuals as well as for society. The costs - social, environmental as well as financial - of inaction on sanitation are clearly far higher than the costs for universal access, yet the MDG target on sanitation is seriously lagging behind. To scale this mountain of global inertia, several initiatives have been taken to make sanitation more attractive for users, private sector and policy makers in order to bend the trend towards large scale implementation.
Organised by the Stockholm International Water Institute and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Stockholm Water Prize Seminar is bringing together current and previous Laureates and other influential thinks and doers to assess the scale of and find solutions to the global sanitation challenge.
