Vatican official stresses importance of World Water Week

Catholic World News - September 03, 2012

Writing for L’Osservatore Romano, an official of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace emphasized the importance of a World Water Week conference that took place in Stockholm from August 26-31.

“The current topics being studied in Stockholm are relevant and complementary: they are technical, such as urbanization and climate change; and social, such as education and community awareness, as well as waste; and institutional, such as decision-making processes and the formulation of future goals for development,” wrote Tebaldo Vinciguerra.

“It is to be hoped that the technicians and experts – who influence state policies and decisions in various ways – will be able to work without weakening the resources and will give an effective impetus in the best possible way to the issue of water in a global context, in a context of changes, in a world that stands in need of good governance for water,” he added.
