Based on the global partnership between the states of the United Nations who unanimously adopted the Millenium declaration, recognizing the Millenium development goals. This declaration states that by the year 2015, safe water supplies and improved sanitation will be brought within the reach of at least half all who still did not have access to these basic services at the start of the new millennium. This report shows how the millennium development goals can be translated into action through water supply and sanitation. Participants included government, donor and NGO partners from Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, The Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Goals set out to achieve were: ensuring environmental sustainability, eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality and empowering women, reducing child mortality, improving maternal health, combating HIV/Aids, malaria and other diseases and lastly developing a Global Partnership for development. The report set out to illustrate how these targets can be met and treats all participating countries individually. It also lays the foundations for strategic country approaches toward the MDGs. The report does not pretend it can give clear cut answers to the problems it deals with, but rather records the outcome of the workshops given during the conference.
