This year, Human Rights Day marks ten years since the United Nations recognized the right to water and sanitation as a right of humanity. On July 28, 2010, through Resolution 64/292, the United Nations General Assembly explicitly recognized “the right drinking water and safe and clean sanitation as a right of humanity ”. The same year, Giorgio Armani’s Acqua for Life global initiative for clean water was launched, with the mission of play a role in helping people to claim their right to clean water and sanitation.
“Access to clean water is undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges in the 21st century.” Giorgio Armani
Since then, Giorgio Armani’s Acqua for Life initiative has focused on providing access universal to drinking water in water-scarce regions. To date, Acqua for Life has invested a total of more than 9 million euros in water projects around the world. As a result, 413 systems of water supplies have helped over 217,000 people, in 15 countries and three continents, ad access drinking water.
Yet, even today, 1 in 10 people in the world do not have access to drinking water close to own home. Then, address the issues regarding clean water, sanitation and sanitation in communities that need it remains one of the fundamental challenges of the 21st century.
