Clean water, better life<br /><ul><li>The recently launched 2009 Human Development Report took the average number of those who are using an improved water resource as an indication of wellbeing. Promoting a healthy life for Egyptians through using clean water and sanitation has been a major concern of the government and international organisations alike.
On Monday, a communication campaign entitled "Clean Water for Healthy Life" was launched to celebrate International Water Day on 22 March and to help promote more awareness among Egyptians of the value of simple hygiene practices that could make a big difference to their lives and to the quality of water in Egypt.
"In addition to highlighting the importance of improving water and sanitation behaviour, this national campaign will seek to accelerate efforts to promote and preserve water quality, water resources and improve sanitation services through the involvement of different players such as the private sector and NGOs," said Erma Manoncourt, UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) Egypt representative.</li></li></ul><li>continuation<br /><ul><li>But water is an expensive product. And for Egypt, it is a crucial resource. Since 1959, Egypt's share of the Nile water is a constant 55.5 billion cubic metres. With the fast growth in population, per capita share of water is diminishing rapidly to below the water poverty line.
According to Abdel-Qawi Khalifa, chairman of the Holding Company for Water and Wastewater (HCWW), the average cost to provide one cubic metre of potable water is an estimated LE0.54. On average, one person consumes 100-500 litres of water daily.</li></li></ul><li>"In addition to highlighting the importance of improving water and sanitation behaviour, this national campaign will seek to accelerate efforts to promote and preserve water quality, water resources and improve sanitation services through the involvement of different players such as the private sector and NGOs," said Erma Manoncourt, UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) Egypt representative.<br />
