KEYNOTE LUNCHEON: "Building a Future for Water in Rotary"
_ Ron Denham, Chairman, Water and Sanitation Rotary Action Group (WASRAG)

Water projects are successful only to the extent that they improve the human condition. A project that performs well for a time but, for avoidable reasons, fails to produce its benefits over the long term is not what we're looking for. Such projects also are not a wise use of humanitarian funds.

How to design and implement sustainable projects is the most pressing challenge in clean water, today. The second is how to scale- up the delivery of clean water to meet the world's pressing need to stop water-borne diseases.

Using the landscape of problems and opportunities for clean water in Haiti's schools and households, the Summit will examine these two most elusive goals SUSTAINABILITY and SCALABILITY.
