Release of the Hashimoto Action Plan II
Letter by the Chair of UNSGAB, HRH Prince Willem-Alexander, the Prince of Orange
I am delighted to share the UN Secretary-General's Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation's (UNSGAB) newly released Hashimoto Action Plan II, available at http://www.unsgab.org/HAP-II/ . This document builds on our strengths, identifies new challenges and sets forth our strategy and objectives through 2012. In only a few years, world leaders will assess progress made towards the Millennium Development Goals, including the targets to halve by 2015 the number of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation. Getting the right policies, strategies and actions in place during the next three years is absolutely critical. The Hashimoto Action Plan II contributes to this effort by motivating, convening and galvanizing its partners to achieve objectives in five key areas: financing, sanitation, monitoring & reporting, integrated water resources management and water and disaster.
The Hashimoto Action Plan II articulates a time-bound vision, targeted actions and clear outcomes for the next three years. I welcome you to work with us as we do everything in our power to ensure that each child, woman and man enjoys clean water and safe sanitation. For without these basic services, full human development is not possible.
H.R.H. Prince Willem-Alexander, Prince of Orange
