Highlights for Thursday, 23 May 2013
On Thursday morning, participants reconvened to continue discussions on food security and nutrition, sustainable agriculture, and DLDD. In the afternoon, they heard a keynote address on water and sanitation from Michel Jarraud, Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization and Chair of UN-Water (via videolink). He stressed the issue of inequalities in access to sanitation and water sources and the need to reach the groups who suffer the most from lack of access, including women and girls. Jarraud was joined by Rabi Mohtar, Executive Director of Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute, and Letitia Obeng, International Water Management Institute Board Member, as panelists to discuss these issues. The panel presentations were followed by a dynamic interactive exchange of views among Member States.
