Often people fail to recognise the importance of infrastructure until they discover they don’t have any. Infrastructure is the great enabler – it enables economic growth and, as a result, is the bedrock for better living conditions. Water, energy, transport and adequate housing are not only a source of development, they drive it forward too.
Water is a source of vital nutrients and the basis for hygiene. But it is an economic good and production factor, too. Access to this essential resource and to good sanitation is essential for health, peaceful coexistence and productivity.
