“Water should be at the top of the global and national agendas.”

“Water should be at the top of the global and national agendas” writes Martin Khor, executive director of the South Centre in an excellent article  published in South Bulletin, and seen in full  here.

“Privatisation was first carried out in Western countries and then spread to developing countries through World Bank loans and projects.  This has led to adverse effects on people’s access to water, according to Barlow, who also documents the fight by citizen groups in many countries to make water a public good, and to make access to water a human right.”
