Billions of people around the world lack access to clean water and reliable energy supplies. This violates the human right to water and sanitation and is a major impediment to the economic and social development of millions of households. Water for the World is a programme launched by Borealis and Borouge in 2007 that aims to advance solutions, expertise and know-how to respond to these global challenges. The programme spans a full range of projects in developing and emerging countries. More information about the programme, as well as a full list of projects, can be found at www.waterfortheworld.net.
