Drastic changes in water policy needed, says World Water Forum chief

Water Forum in Turkey focuses on vital resource. The 5th World Water Forum, a conference held every three years to coordinate the management of global water resources, is being held this year in Istanbul. The conference, which began Monday and goes through March 22, welcomed over 20,000 international participants from governments, education and the private sector. Its primary goal is to achieve a framework that create processes to more effectively manage water as a resource, with this year’s participants also placing specific focus on the urgent problems of drought and climate change.

We laud your concerned commitment, worldwide attendees! With Heaven’s grace, may the accords reached at this week’s 5th World Water Forum help ensure the precious blessing of sufficient water for all.
