Senior representatives of the UN emphasised the importance of the protection of water resources at the Budapest Water Summit 2016. According to Peter Thomson, President of the UN General Assembly, there can only be peace and security if people worldwide have access to water. At the same time, in his video message, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon spoke of the need to transform our management of resources in order to achieve sustainable development.

This would ensure the availability of safe, clean drinking water for all residents of Earth. Mr Ban Ki-moon also elaborated on the need for more efficient wastewater management and, in this regard, he noted that currently utilised good practices should be adopted globally.
