"Over 25,000 participants took part in the 5th World Water Forum, from March 16th to 22nd in Istanbul, making it the world�s biggest ever water-related event.

(WWC) is an independent, international organisation incorporated as a French not-for-profit association, with a special consultative status granted by UNESCO and ECOSOC. The World Water Council’s objectives, as stated in its Constitution, are: To identify critical water issues of local, regional and global importance on the basis of ongoing assessments of the state of water; To raise awareness about critical water issues at all levels of decision making, from the highest authorities to the general public; To develop a common strategic vision on integrated water resources management on a sustainable basis, and to promote the ...
H2O is the new oil: Water, water everywhere? Not so much
available to everyone, but also that in planning and policies affecting water, social rights and needs take precedence over economic considerations. Further, it is now national policy in Uruguay that the “public service of water supply for human consumption will be served exclusively and directly by state legal persons,” i.e., not by for-profit companies. The referendum in the South American nation, the result of a two-year grassroots fight led by a network of trade unions, human rights groups, and environmental organizations, gave a boost (pdf) to the international civil society water movement that hopes to spread ... market research, surveys and trends
Paris takes back public control of their water services from ...
ALTERNET – In the first hours of 2010, the city of Paris, whose water system has been under various forms of mixed public and private management for much of the last century, took back public control of its water utility. The decision is emblematic of changes occurring throughout the world, with the wave of utility privatizations ebbing in the face of mismanagement, dismal community relations and a rising tide of concern, in the developing world especially, about whether denial of affordable, safe water constitutes an abuse of human rights. Despite a widespread crisis of confidence in private investment inspired both by ... market research, surveys and trends

Refusal to endorse water as a human right exposes the US and UN conspiracy
Late last month, there were two pointers, both arising from the UN within the span of just two days, that exposed the ugliness of the US devised human rights conspiracy and the increasingly visible face of the UN as an organisation serving only the interests of the rich, domineering countries. On 28 July, the champions of the global human rights movement, the US, the EU (except Germany and Spain), Canada, and Australia, abstained from voting for a resolution presented by Pablo Solon, the Bolivian ambassador to the UN, co-sponsored by 31 other countries, declaring that: “safe and clean drinking water and sanitation is a human ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Go Green, Ron Duncan: Water films still making a splash
Water-related films like "China Town" and "Step Into Liquid" are popular for their entertainment value, but they also can provide awareness and an oblique appreciation for water. However, as local and global water shortages start to show their strain on society and the environment, there has been a surge of videos and films that explore and address these water issues in a more direct fashion. These films range from short, well-done postings on "YouTube" to full-length professional productions. They are usually designed to educate and deliver the full impact of an issue related to the world's or ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Google Answers: Michel Camdessus' contact details
I want the contact details of Michel Camdessus, former IMF President and an old friend of mine. We met for first time in Papua New Guinea in 1996 or 1997. From there on we correspond each other (birthday cards, Christmas, etc) until he was forced to leave IMF due to his health problems. I used to have his Washington's address, phone number, etc., but when he left, nobody -reasonably- wanted to provide me with his contact details. Could you do something to obtain, at least, his fax number or his postal address or e-mail account? Request for Question Clarification by bobbie7-ga on 10 Nov 2003 06:04 PST Hi Lansingh! ...
Google Answers: Stakeholders in Privatization
Thanks for a quick response. These questions are theoretical questions for my literature review in MBA level.

The expectation length for this section is about 10-15 pages. It aims to emphasize on the importance of including stakeholder views in studying privatization and effect of stakeholders on policy implementation.
