WATER MANAGEMENT SHOULD BE COMMITTED TO THE ERADICATION OF WATER DISEASES, CONFLICTS AND POVERTY, PREVAILING THE SUPREMACY FOR PEOPLE’S LIFE AND NATURE OVER ANY OTHER DEVELOPMENT INTERESTS
Water is life, but water is also a prime condition for the development of any region of the planet.
However, in today’s world, strategic planning for the use of water resources, either surface or underground, must prioritize actions committed to the eradication of water diseases in regions without sanitation, in the resolution of conflicts in places where the equation of uses must be evaluated in such a way as to meet all segments, but fundamentally in guaranteeing poverty reduction.
In this scenario, citizen participation becomes paramount in aspects of governance allied with decision-making power, which will only be comprehensive with the participation of people, residents of each region, that know their territory, the problems there, the water needs and specifically the water reservoir to serve everyone.
Thus, this commitment to priorities should be the result of a participatory, integrated and shared management of water resources in each basin, with the involvement of civil society, the public power and the private sector.
