Quebec City, Canadá - O ex-presidente dos EUA, Bill Clinton, juntamente com um grupo de cerca de duas dezenas de cabeças de aposentados de Governo se reuniram para estabelecer um painel para a liderança relacionada a questões globais de água.
Conforme Click Green , the group stated that "international water leadership is virtually non-existent." The retired leaders say the panel will work to elevate the issue's political prominence in an effort to avert a looming "water crisis".
20 members of the InterAction Council are attending this year's three-day annual meeting in Quebec City. All that it is known at the time of this publication is that former US President Bill Clinton, former Mexican Presidents Vicente Fox and Ernesto Zedillo, and former prime ministers Yasuo Fukuda (Japan) and Gro Brundtland (Norway) are present.
At the meeting's conclusion today, the group urged a new international water ethic and offered today's political office-holders 21 recommendations for world water management moving forward.
The top recommendations are:
- - placing water at the forefront of the global political agenda
- - linking climate change research and adaptation programs to water issues
- - make the right to water legally enforceable
- - raise the price of water to reflect its economic value while making provisions for people in poverty
- prefer the growth of food over biofuel crops in places where water supplies are threatened
- - and encourage the UN Security Council to take up water as an important focus
Click Green reported that the group welcomed both a high level of dialogue and cooperation on water-allocation in China between India and the work done by the Clinton/Bush Haiti Fund.
