The Stockholm Water Prize

2,500 scientists, politicians and officials from 140 countries have gathered in Stockholm, marking the beginning of this year’s World Water Week.

The annual conference focuses mainly on sanitary problems and possible solutions to them in the developing countries.

According to a study unveiled Monday at the global water conference, people in developing countries are facing growing health risks caused by the widespread use of raw sewage to irrigate crops.

The report goes on stating that more than half of the farmland near 70 percent of the cities in developing countries is watered with sewage that threatens to spread epidemics.
