Food for Thought and World Water Day 2013

The theme for the 2013 UN International Year and World Water Day is “Water Cooperation”. The global conversation regarding water cooperation and water rights is more important than ever.  Global warming is forecasted to bring changes in weather and water systems across the globe, including an increase in extreme weather events, like Hurricane Sandy.  Water cooperation will play an important role in adapting and managing these changes.  The Guardian has published a pertinent article describing how: Global Water Governance Trends Show Move Away From Private Ownership.  Water bodies are increasingly being managed on a watershed-level basis and involving multiple stakeholders.

So, in anticipation of the day on March 22, 2013, take some time to ponder what water cooperation means to you.
