Water week … where is that drop of water?

leave a comment »

Scramble for water … and when it gets to the people … the price is so high that people in the low income bracket can’t afford.

River beds that once flowed with water are now … a result of changing climate …

If celebrations marking ‘Water Week’, that started yesterday and will reach climax on 22nd March, are to have any meaning to an ordinary person, the following need to be done:

1. Make water a basic human right (not just on papers and other written instruments but in deeds);
2. Make water easily accessible by all (if not the majority);
3. Make water affordable for all (if not the majority);
4. Put politics and profiteering aside and address the challenge of climate change seriously (scientific methods of controling the challenge have been expounded with great expertise – let’s observe them and abide by them);
5. Instead of nations investing in military equipments and weapons (of mass destruction) … direct the money into managing water resources in order to make them sustainable for current generations and those that will come in future; and
6. For the case of Tanzania, the money that we are supposed to pay to Dowans … let’s direct it in managing the environment and help protect various water sources in the country.

My 2 cents.
