Les espoirs d'une politique mondiale de l'eau
Hopes of a world water policy
Gouverneur du Conseil mondial de l'eau, Vice-Président du programme Solidarité-Eau
Some institutional hopes are based on present practices: a panel of senior financiers have been brought together by Michel Camdessus, with purpose to deliver proposals to the Water Ministerial Conference to be held during the Third World Water Forum, Kyoto, March 2003; the water Right is supposed to develop new rules for a widened solidarity in favor of a better share of the water resources; a more accessible information will strengthen the links between the various stakeholders of an improved governance of the water policy. Some other basic hopes complement this first approach with a long range extension: the sustainable development of the water resources and uses must pay attention to the socio-economic background for any implementation; the Deming cycle must be observed when building the water policy; financial achievement is beyond the economic analysis, its rules must be strictly obeyed. As a starting statement for the future, a global hope is addressed to a higher spirit of responsibility, an improved efficiency and a more practicable generosity.
