Samenvatting: 

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), identified in the 2000 United Nations Millennium Declaration, reflect the commitment of the world community to work together and reduce global poverty. The MDGs' Target 10 calls for the world to halve the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation by 2015. It presents a particularly formidable challenge for Asia and the Pacific, where one in three persons does not have access to safe, sustainable water supplies, and one in two to sanitation. This report assesses the region's prospects of reaching Target 10. Important to the progress and prospects of the region is the rationale that this report presents: it is not investing for water's sake, but for poverty's sake.
