The Stockholm International Water Institute is hosting the 20th annual World Water Week. This is where decision makers, environmentalists and non-governmental organizations come to learn about new solutions to problems with the world's water. This year, participants are considering global issues, including climate change. A delegate - who heads a major Sri Lankan NGO - explains how much water is important for women in her country.
