Sustaining Water For All in a Changing Climate

In a new report titled "Sustaining Water for All in a Changing Climate" the World Bank has "reviewed" its 2003 Water Resource Sector Strategy, and largely self-proclaimed it a success. In a blow to activists, the report reiterates the Bank's ideological, and intensely controversial, promotion of water system privatization. And while access to safe water and sanitation, as an indicator of success, is ignored, the report declares that reaching the MDG sanitation targets is an impossibility. The report offers very few lessons learned, instead reaffirming the bank's strategic direction while calling for "better information and a more integrated approach to water management."
