That this House notes that one in five people globally do not have access to safe water, one in three do not have basic sanitation provision and that the Millennium Development Goal targets for water and sanitation are not due to be met in Africa until 2050 and 2100 respectively; recognises that illness and death from unclean water, absence of sanitation and an unhygienic environment wipes out up to five per cent. of African gross domestic product annually; is concerned that this lack of progress undermines the achievement of development goals for health, education, gender equity and poverty reduction; is similarly concerned that slow progress in the development and implementation of integrated water resource management plans undermines countries' capacity to adapt and cope with climatic extremes; and endorses calls from the UN Development Programme and the End Water Poverty Campaign for a Global Action Plan for Water and Sanitation to be adopted by the G8, to ensure that political action is taken to address urgently the global crisis in sanitation and water.
