The organizations concerned about the difficulties today are in the enjoyment of the human right to water and sanitation an important part of people in our countries have shared struggles, experiences, successes, failures, challenges and, above all, hope in a world where the human right to water and sanitation a reality for all.

We have discussed and we listened. Some of the important lessons from the Forum are:

  • Water and sanitation is a human right and as such we have to contemplate it in all our interventions.
  • We believe that water and sanitation, for its importance to life, must be positioned as one of the new Sustainable Development Goals in the post 2015 schedule
  • There is a need for coordinated work and network for the exchange of experiences and good practices and advocacy work before the public authorities at local, national, regional and international sub.
  • We recognize the need to work on water and sanitation from a holistic approach, ensuring water quality, environmental sustainability, mitigating climate change and respect for "Mother Earth" from threats such as extractive industries and agribusiness.
  • Militancy is not enough. We should strive to work with reliable and accurate information and data for the advocacy work

One concrete outcome of the event was the letter of support signed by numerous groups to request our fellow Water Forum of El Salvador addressed to the Legislature, Which will be delivered on Monday, so that an agreement is reached for processing and signature of the essential Water Law in the country

Finally, we announce that commitment within the Alliance for Solidarity has water and sanitation, we do not want to miss this experience and therefore propose a Second Forum to be held in October of next year in La Paz (Bolivia).

      Hello Gerard! You're absolutely right! Unfortunately we do not have the time or resources to translate all the content we generate all languages, so we use a translation by google, which is acceptable in English, French and Portuguese but still leaves much to be desired ... If you have the time and the desire to review the main pages ... I really appreciate it possible? merci! :)
