This year's World Water Week symposium in Stockholm, held from 21 -27 August, addressed the role of water and sanitation as key entry points for achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Water and sanitation are undoubtedly a crucial starting point for poverty alleviation, yet in many urban areas growing demand for water has led to river basin supplies becoming over-committed, and new sources of water need to be found, whether from reuse, rainwater or desalinisation. Focus on Water and food featured some of the key issues from the 2004 symposium, and this edition of the journal Water science and technology contains the complete proceedings from that event. Topics include restoration of wetlands, sustainable groundwater management, green/blue water management options for crop production, and managing rivers for fisheries and livelihoods. However, it is unfortunate that for non-subscribers, the cost of downloadable papers should be so high.
