Aslam Chaudhry, the Chief of the Water and Natural Resources Branch of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), told a press conference at UN Headquarters in New York that water in particular was central to the current deliberations of the Commission on Sustainable Development.
The CSD - a subsidiary of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) - is this year assessing the progress made in 72 areas outlined in its water and sanitation agenda in 2005, Mr. Chaudhry said.
He said that dozens of countries have reported to the Commission that they are making significant progress on this front, particularly in their efforts to better regulate and manage their often limited water resources.A water, sanitation and hygiene programme in some 70 countries across Asia and Africa was also reducing the burden of diseases in many nations, for example.
A lack of funding, infrastructure and capacity in poor countries were the main obstacles to further improvements, Mr. Chaudhry said, calling for assistance in all three areas as well as better coordination at the country level.

Her colleague, Aslam Chaudhry, who is chief of the water and natural resources branch of DESA, said that crops used for biofuel production had also contributed to the current worldwide rise in food prices, since "they depend quite heavily on land and water resources - so we are using our precious natural resources for the production of these crops."
"At the same time, poor people in developing countries do not have food and had those natural resources been managed for the production of cereal crops, we might not have seen this crisis," he added.

Aslam Chaudhry, a UN technical adviser on water and environment who helped organize the Dushanbe Water Forums in 2003 and 2005, said that despite public posturing both Uzbekistan and Tajikistan were engaging in meaningful, though low-profile discussions.
"Undoubtedly the Uzbeks will be affected by the Rogun dam, but this project has been on the scene since 1976.They've not made much progress.It still requires a lot of research.Nobody knows just how cost effective it will be," Chaudhry said.
"But the Tajiks and Uzbeks have a working relationship.These discussions are not in the political forefront, but are behind closed doors," he continued.
MediaGlobal: Hopes grow for an African fertilizer industry

With much of the continent lacking the infrastructure and funding needed to build chemical plants, "Africa is totally reliant on imports of fertilizer, [diminishing] the productivity level in the agriculture sector," said Aslam Chaudhry, Chief of the Water and Natural Resources branch of the UN's Division for Sustainable Development.
Bringing down the cost of fertilizer is essential to increasing access. "You need to somehow provide some economic incentives to the farmers so that they can use more and more fertilizer," Chaudhry told MediaGlobal.
...
"It generated a lot of investment in the private sector in those countries to install fertilizer factories, fertilizer plants, and these people started to produce fertilizer," Chaudhry said.
