Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian stressed the need to focus on adopting pragmatic approaches for judicious water consumption so as to achieve sustainable development. "Water [shortage], inflicted on many countries in the past few years, has become a major challenge to sustainable development … Governments need to pay closer attention to solve the problem," Ardakanian was also quoted as saying by ILNA on Thursday.
He was speaking at a two-day international conference titled “International Decade for Action—Water for Sustainable Development 2018-28” held in Tajikistan's capital Dushanbe from June 21-22.
The conference was organized by Tajikistan's government in cooperation with the United Nations and affiliates, particularly the UN Department for Economic and Social Affairs.
