Esta tensión puede causar que muchos esfuerzos por cambiar fracasen, pero si se superan, el cambio puede llegar rápidamente.

International Year of Sanitation Finally, I would like to mention the issue of water and sanitation. On November 21st in New York, the launching ceremony of the “International Year of Sanitation 2008” was held. The regional launch of the IYS will be conducted tomorrow during this Summit. The IYS was one of the recommendations proposed by the UN SecretaryGeneral’s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation. I would like to pay homage to His Royal Highness Prince Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands, who succeeded the former Chairman of the Board Ryutaro Hashimoto, for his remarkable contribution to water and sanitation issues.

Let us agree to embrace our shared vision of raising water and sanitation to the top of our local, national and global agendas. With political will and the support of all the stakeholders, we can make the dream of providing all the peoples of our region, sustainable access to affordable safe drinking water and modern sanitation a reality. Thank you. p65 37 6/6/2008, 2:53 PM 38 Keynote Speech His Royal Highness Prince Willem-Alexander of The Netherlands Chairman of United Nations Secretary-General’s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation Your Imperial Highness, Prime Minister, Mr.

Considering the fact that most of the global water problems occur in this area, we have to admit we are facing imminent crises. Three major challenges in this region may be identified. One is securing safe and hygienic water resources. According to the United Nations World Water Development Report (2003), about 700 million people in the Asia-Pacific region have no access to safe drinking water. It is expected that water demand will greatly increase in this region due to rapid economic development and population growth.
