Minister Bin Fahad mentioned that although the world has seen remarkable improvement in the past decade as a result of the green initiatives, there are still many obstacles in the way before the global community can ensure clean water and the necessary sanitation services to the population. He also added that another challenge that becomes an impediment to certain country’s development efforts is depletion and decreasing per capita distribution of water resources, as a result of both human and natural factors.
