Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

To mark World Water Day today, the STEPS Centre has gathered together a range of exciting and thought-provoking new resources.

  • A new edition of the IDS Bulletin, ‘Some for All?’ Politics and Pathways in Water and Sanitation, edited by Alan Nicol, Lyla Mehta and Jeremy Allouche and featuring work collected at the STEPS Centre’s 2011 water symposium, has been published. The Bulletin focuses on STEPS work on water and sanitation, bringing together papers from participants at our 2011 Water Symposium, including Barbara Frost, Gourisankar Ghosh and Kamal Kar. A selection of papers from the Bulletin will be available to view online, for free, until 2 April. Read Kamal Kar’s chapter here

  • STEPS water and sanitation convenor Lyla, with Jeremy, Alan Nicol, Harriet Dudley and Phemo Kgomotso attended the 6th World Water Forum in Marseille to host a debate focusing on the pathways taken (or not taken) since the New Delhi statement at the end of the UN Water Decade in 1990. They all blogged from the event. Read their blogs and watch some interviews with delegates talking about which sustainable development issues they would like to see addressed at June’s Rio+20 Earth Summit.
  • Institute of Development Studies director Lawrence Haddad has written about the Bulletin on his own blog, Development Horizons.
