UN's Eliasson on providing sanitation for all
Today is World Toilet Day, highlighting the need for better sanitation to protect people from disease, especially children, says Jan Eliasson, United Nations deputy secretary-general. "To see progress on sanitation, communities worldwide will need to create the space to talk about the practice of open defecation. Only then will the issue gain more visibility in public discourse and motivate tangible actions," he argues. The Huffington Post (11/19), The Guardian (London) (11/19), Bloomberg Businessweek (11/19)
