Interview: President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf marks World Water Day
Al Jazeera English on Mar 22, 2013
The United Nations says countries should work together to improve access to sufficient sanitation and clean water. The message is the central theme of this year’s World Water Day. According to the UN, 2.5 billion people do not have access to even basic sanitation, about a third of the world’s population. Every 20 seconds around the globe, a child dies because of poor sanitation. In Africa, 300 million people live in water scarce environments. And funding for infrastructure there is falling short by 115 million dollars a year. The result is devastating. 115 Africans die every hour from diseases linked to poor sanitation and unclean water. Al Jazeera’s Dareen Abughaida interviews Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, in her capacity of goodwill ambassador for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Africa.
