“We have reached an important target, but we cannot stop here.  Our next step must be to target the most difficult to reach, the poorest and the most disadvantaged people across the world.  The United Nations General Assembly has recognized drinking water and sanitation as human rights.  That means we must ensure every person has access.” — Ban Ki-moon, United Nations Secretary-General.
