Content - Summary

En el año 2000, cerca de mil millones de residentes de áreas urbanas de todo el mundo carecían de servicios adecuados de saneamiento e higiene; cifra que, en las áreas rurales, es aún mayor. Sin embargo, cada vez con mayor frecuencia se presentan casos donde se demuestra que el saneamiento es un buen negocio y que favorece principalmente a los pobres. Adicionalmente, y aunque parezca una extraña paradoja, su solución contiene un enorme potencial para alcanzar los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio (ODM) convenidos por todas las naciones del mundo para apoyar a las poblaciones más pobres a obtener una mejor calidad de vida como derecho humano a través del acceso universal a servicios básicos y educación. Los ocho Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio abarcan desde la reducción a la mitad la pobreza extrema hasta la detención de la propagación del VIH/SIDA y la consecución de la enseñanza primaria universal para el año 2015.
