Through the grant provided by the World Water Forum, the World Water Council is helping us to improve access to water and sanitation facilities in the village of Nevgody, in Ukraine. Thanks to this support the village of Nevgody, which serves as a home to families resettled from Chernobyl, will obtain new water treatment facilities and children of the local school will benefit from ecological latrines. The inhabitants of the village will aslo benefit from educational activities on water and sanitation. The implementation of the project started in January 2013.
The World Water Council was established in 1996 in response to increasing concern from the global community about world water issues. Its mission is to promote awareness, build political commitment and trigger action on critical water issues at all levels, including the highest decision-making level, to facilitate the efficient management and use of water in all its dimensions and on an environmentally sustainable basis.
