Project: Water As A Human Right Campaign (End Date 2006)
Nicaragua has made a committment to reduce in half by 2015 the percentage of persons who lack access to water and sanitation,(MDG #10). However since 2000, The Nicaraguan government has been granting contracts for the modernization of water and sanitation systems to transnational ompanies even though there are numerous examples from Argentina, Indonesia and other countries where research has proven that privatization is not the solution to increased access to water.
Change for Children and their partner Centro Humboldt created momentum in the fight against the privatization of hydrological resources in Nicaragua. Thank you for your support of this important effort to achieve one of the key MDG’s.
