Interview // Uschi Eid: "...water has never been recognised in its importance for economical development and poverty reduction"

Interview with Uschi Eid, Vice-Chair of the United Nations Secretary General's Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation (UNSGAB)

In this interview Mrs. Eid points out that an isolated discussion of challenges in the water sector does not lead to sustainable solutions within the nexus of water, energy and food security. In the preparatory process for the Bonn2011 Nexus Conference, Mrs. Eid sees the possibility to give water its real importance for economical development and poverty reduction.
