The United Nations has declared 2013 the international year of water cooperation. World Day for Water on 22 March provided Federal Councillor Didier Burkhalter with an opportunity to stress the urgent need for sustainable management of world water resources at a summit in The Hague. Martin Dahinden, head of the SDC, also underlined this message during a launching event at the Stade de Suisse in Bern.
