EU to realign development aid towards water

With the UN Millennium Development Goals set to be reviewed this year, the European Commission is stressing the need for an increased focus on access to water, as the achievement of other UN development goals depends on it. Climate change will alter completely the EU's aid policy to developing countries in the future, and "water and land use will gain in importance," said Luis Riera Figueras, director at the European Commission's development department, addressing the European Parliament's intergroup on water on 24 February. As more than 1.2 billion people still lack access to safe drinking water, including more than 40% of Africans, there is "a strong case" for more progress on the matter, he said.
