Special mention
Photographer: Arie Basuki - Bogor, Indonesia

Sufficient, safe, acceptable, physically accessible and affordable water for personal and domestic uses is vital for all. Recreational use of water can provide health benefits but health effects can be adverse if it is polluted or unsafe, which children in this photo - playing in flood water in Jakarta - may not realize.
