Trons roll för en långsiktigt hållbar resursanvändning sätts i fokus under World Water Week i Stockholm nästa vecka.

Religiösa ledare och internationell expertis samlas för att delge kunskaper och perspektiv på en av vår tids mest akuta utmaningar: Hur säkerställer vi global tillgång till rent dricksvatten?
