The Veolia Foundation in the World Water Forum

The Veolia Foundation participated in the 6th World Water Forum held in Marseille from March 12th to March 17th 2012. The Foundation organised a side event to present the Global Alliance Against Cholera (GAAC), its approach and strategy. The GAAC is an International Advisory Group of water, health and cholera experts that aims at developing an integrated approach that combines epidemiology, water, sanitation and hygiene.

The Veolia Foundation also co-organised with the WHO (World Health Organization) a thematic session (core group 1.3 target 1.3.7) focused on the fight against cholera. This was the occasion to present various examples of operational projects implemented worldwide.

More than 200 persons attended to these two events. The Forum was an opportunity for the Foundation to publish a booklet and a film presenting the program to fight against cholera.
