In early 2004, the then United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan called on former Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto of Japan to devise and execute this idea: bring together eminent people to advise on how to solve the planet’s foremost water and sanitation troubles, suggest a handful of attainable recommendations and a concise plan of action, and then provide the high-level leadership needed to galvanize the international community into action on the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets for drinking water and sanitation. The Prime Minister and his Chair successors took up these challenges.
