“Leaving no one behind" is the imperative of the United Nations to celebrate World Water Day this year, an initiative born in 1992 to preserve the environment and, specifically, encourage the universal access to this precious element. The sentence is an adaptation of the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: as Sustainable Development progresses, everyone must benefit.
This World Water Day, 22nd March 2019, is about tackling water crisis by addressing reasons why so many people are being left behind, generally marginalized groups - women, children, refugees, indigenous people, disabled -who are often overlooked and face discrimination as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.
Anyone can properly act to avoid waste of water in the everyday life. But many other actions can be put in place.
As an hydropower producer we use the latest technologies to preserve this precious element and make all our stakeholders aware of water’s vital value any time they visit our hydropower plants.
Let’s think about our future: water is definitely part of it!
