水与生活中的方方面面都密切相关。时至今日,仍然有十分之一的人口无法获得安全的饮用水,大约23亿人口所居住的地方卫生设施不足,社会和经济情况非常糟糕。但是一旦获得干净的水资源和卫生设施,问题便可转化为机遇,发展教育资源和工作机会的潜力得到释放,全

民健康水平也会提高。

ISO新近发布了ISO 焦点的2018年1月/2月号,恰逢联合国国际行动十年—可持续发展的水(2018-2028)启动,旨在提高全世界对水资源处于迫在眉睫状态的认识,以此激发人们采取更多应对行动。    

本期ISO焦点提供水资源领域的最新发展信息,是有关水和废水工业前沿消息的重要来源。本期内容聚焦城市水资源服务对于快速发展的城市的驱动力,毫无疑问,它讲述的是我们当今时代最迫切的问题。

ISO主席John Walter 为本期杂志写了引言:“当我就任ISO主席这一新职位时,我就知道国际标准是实现每一个联合国可持续发展目标不可或缺的部分,包括发展目标六——确保所有人享有水和环境卫生,实现水和环境卫生的可持续管理。我们在本期ISO焦点中直接解决这些问

题。”

    2018年1月/2月期不仅分享了水资源领域中引领思潮和成就斐然的研究人员、积极分子以及标准制定专家的故事,还涉及全世界水质量及其管理的最新且最具创新性的标准。我们还在本期分析ISO 标准对解决当今许多与水资源相关的挑战的贡献,包括提供获得环境卫生的服

务,从厕所和污水处理系统到能安全处理人类排泄物的固体废物管理。

本期ISO焦点也刊登了一篇比尔·盖茨基金会的水源、环境卫生与清洁项目副主管的独家专访特辑。Doulaye Koné评估了世界公共卫生危机后,作出如下评论:“我们把使用厕所看作是理所当然的,但据疾病预防和控制中心(CDC)的统计,每年有超过万人,其中大部分都是幼儿,因

环境卫生条件不好而死亡。其本身已是悲剧,但所造成的影响却是远不仅限于此。”

Doulaye同时也是ISO/PC 305项目委员会的主席。对于ISO 标准在全球市场内的重要性以及ISO 30500标准在日后对未铺设下水道区的卫生系统有何好处,他发表了自己的看法。

“目前的解决方法非常昂贵,所以我们需要规模经济来削减成本。在这点上,国际标准能够通过为满足大部分人需求的产品设置规范而降低成本。”

ISOfocus highlights water and sanitation for UN Decade of Action

Water connects every aspect of life. Today, one in ten people lack access to safe water and about 2.3 billion people live without adequate sanitation, with disastrous social and economic consequences. Yet access to water and sanitation can turn problems into potential, unlocking education, work opportunities and improved health for all.

ISO has just released its January/February 2018 issue of ISOfocus. Coinciding with the start of the United Nations International Decade for Action – “Water for Sustainable Development” (2018-2028), it aims to raise awareness of the critical state of water resources around the world and inspire more action to tackle it.

This ISOfocus issue provides updates on developments in the water sector and is a vital source of up-to-date information about the water and wastewater industry. With its focus on driving performance in urban water services for rapidly growing cities, it undoubtedly speaks to the most pressing issue of our time.

ISO President John Walter writes in his introductory remark: “As I embark on my new role as ISO President, I know that International Standards are an integral part of achieving every one of the Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal 6 ensuring the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all, which we address directly in this issue of ISOfocus.”

The January/February 2018 issue shares the stories of the sector’s thought-leading and top-achieving researchers, activists and standards experts. It also looks at the latest and most innovative standards for water quality and its management worldwide. What we unpack in this issue is the contribution of ISO standards to solving many of today’s water-related challenges, including access to decent sanitation services, from toilets and sewage systems to solid waste management, that safely dispose of human waste.

This edition of ISOfocus also features an exclusive interview with the Deputy Director on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene at the Gates Foundation. Taking stock of the world’s sanitation crisis, Doulaye Koné comments: “We take our flush toilets for granted, yet according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 800 000 people, many of them young children, die every year because of inadequate sanitation. This is tragic on its own, but the consequences are far-reaching.”

Doulaye, who is also the Chair of project committee ISO/PC 305, gives his views on the importance of ISO standards in the global marketplace and the benefits of the future ISO 30500 for non-sewered sanitation systems.

“The solutions available today are expensive, so we need economies of scale to bring down the costs. That’s also where International Standards can help by setting specifications for products that meet the needs of a large population.”

Find out how ISO standards can help solve the global water and sanitation crisis, and ensure better health for billions of people worldwide, by reading the latest ISOfocus.
