WSSCC Executive Director Jon Lane is one of the invited keynote and plenary speakers at this week’s STEPS Water and Sanitation Symposium 2011, which is titled “Some for All? Pathways and Politics in Water and Sanitation since New Delhi, 1990.”  The event takes place today and tomorrow in Brighton, the United Kingdom and is arranged by the Institute of Development Studies.  

(See Mr. Lane’s presentation here on You Tube.)

In December 1990 the United Nations General Assembly endorsed the “New Delhi Statement,” an output of the Global Consultation on Safe Water and Sanitation for the 1990s hosted by the Indian Government and the United Nations Development Programme. The Brighton symposium looks back at the New Delhi Statement to understand more fully the pathways that have – or could have – emerged and the political economy and politics of water and sanitation policy. It also examines the processes in the intervening 21 years, as well will look ahead to 2012 (Rio +20) , 2015 (the Millennium Development Goal target date) and beyond.
