Water for the People Network (WPN) joined 4,200 water justice activists who have gathered at the Alternative World Water Forum (alternately called, Forum Alternatif Mondial de L'eau or FAME) that took place from March 14-16 at Docks des Suds in Marseille, France. Under the overarching theme, “Resistance against Neoliberal Reforms,” WPN facilitated two workshops: (i) resource grabbing through water bottling, where the session presented case studies of the ill-effects of water bottling industries in China, Indonesia, Italy and Morocco; and (ii) local struggles against water privatization and public-private partnerships (PPPs) in Chile, Spain, Ecuador, Nepal, Indonesia and the Philippines, where Maria Theresa Nera-Lauron of IBON International was one of the speakers presenting the case of Manila.

CSO Strategy Meeting on the Right to Water: Challenges and Imperatives for Rio+20 and Beyond

Hanoi, Vietnam

10 June 2012

 

 

Twenty years after Rio 1992, we are nowhere near the future that we want with respect to universal access to water. And our collective future is threatened with the further commercialization of nature. Join Water for the People Network and IBON International in a strategy session on the right to water and sustainability towards Rio+20 and beyond in Hanoi, Vietnam on June 10, 2012.

 

The main objectives of this meeting are:

  • To provide an overview of the current state of play in Rio+20, key points of contention in the draft outcome document, and overall critique of the Green Economy architecture from the perspective of Asian CSOs with an advocacy on water;
  • To map out ongoing campaign initiatives and strategies towards Rio+20 and beyond on water and identify possible areas of cooperation; and
  • To determine a clear message that Asian CSOs will bring to Rio+20 in line with the right to water and sustainability and find ways to effectively communicate this inside and outside the official process.

The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) will take place in 2012, marking two decades of official international action on sustainable development. In the first Rio Earth Summit in 1992, the international community came to recognize the unequal and unsustainable character of dominant development patterns. At the same time, it committed to take steps towards more equitable and sustainable development, and produced the conventions on climate change, biodiversity, and Agenda 21. Twenty years on, the world finds itself far off track in realizing the vision of Rio, even before the explosion of the multiple financial and economic crises of 2007-08. These recent crises further aggravated the food, energy and climate crises and underscored the urgency of a global shift to alternative development modes.

The Victory of the Italian People is a Victory for the People’s Global Struggle against Water Privatization! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Monday, 27 June 2011 02:12

For the first time since 1995, a referendum managed to reach a quorum in Italy and of the 57% of the population that voted (about 26 million), 96% voted to keep their water services public. This is a remarkable achievement for Italians and for the thousands of activists who spent months in the spring and early summer doing outreach at local markets and public spaces, handing out information, and registering people in a petition to demand a series of national referenda to overturn the water privatization law.
