World Water Contract

Put into question are trends towards globilazation of water resources and promoting a marketing approach to managing water resources in developing countries. The Group is promoting the development of National Associations in many countries to launch initiatives to support the Global Water Contract at a national level. France, Italy, Switzerland, USA, and Canada have formed associations in 1999. Brazil and Japan are previewed to form associations during 2000. Belgium officially announces the fomation of The Belgian Association for the World Water Contract on March 22, World Water Day, and MSF has joined the Association to advocate that access to water is equal to access to health and that both are human rights.
