Water, sanitation and hygiene is a global crisis: WaterAid's global advocacy director 16.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Supplying clean water and toilets for all could take hundreds of years in countries like Eritrea and Namibia unless governments step up funding to tackle the problem and its harmful effects on health, an international development agency warned on Monday. WaterAid - which says nearly 850 million people lack clean water - predicted the world will miss a global goal to provide drinking water and adequate sanitation for everyone by 2030. Meeting it will cost $28 billion per year, the non-profit said. "Water, sanitation and hygiene is a global crisis," said Savio Carvalho, WaterAid's global advocacy director. "We're really calling for governments to pull up their socks," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation from the United Nations in New York. From July 9-18, governments are reviewing progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, which were agreed at the United Nations in 2015, with a focus on six of the 17. Last week, UN officials said barriers to achieving the 2030 water and sanitation targets range from ...

Speak up Delhi: Unending woes of Sangam Vihar residents, no relief from AAP government 16.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Nestled in posh south Delhi, Sangam Vihar which is touted to be one of the biggest unauthorised colonies in the country is a picture of utter neglect. Grappling with acute power and water shortage, the area has a host of other problems that have forced its residents to live in extremely deplorable conditions. The colony is notorious for water shortage every summer season. The problem is so drastic that fights over water erupt regularly. A man was murdered in June over a dispute that was triggered by laying of water, showing how life here was cheaper than water. Residents claim that it has been more than 15 years that they have been waiting for pipelines to be laid but the ruling parties have failed to keep their promise.  The shortage has led to influential people forming their gangs to provide water to residents, and this too results in gun battles during peak summer season. While they struggle for water to run in taps, the monsoon brings its own share of woes for them with flooded roads. A short spell ...

Mumbai Rains: It's a long swim home for Vasai after its 26/7 12.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Life started limping back to normalcy in the Nallasapora-Vasai belt on Wednesday, which was marooned by the torrential rains for the past three days. On Wednesday afternoon, wading through waterlogged streets in many parts of Palghar district, residents stepped out to buy bare essentials. A spot visit made by the DNA team revealed the plight of common people, who had to shell out extra money for vegetables, milk and water. Many residents across the western suburbs complained of vegetables becoming dearer and shortage of milk. Bottled water, that is normally sold at Rs 30 was being sold at Rs 80, while one litre milk was being sold for Rs 100. Several officegoers said that they would resume work on Thursday if the water subsided and the rain gods had mercy. Even as mobile network, electricity and rail connectivity remained erratic, the Western Railway stated that local train services were running normal between Dahanu and Churchgate. Trains ran at 10 km per hour on the Nallasopara-Vasai belt. On ...
