O 8º Fórum Mundial da Água irá abordar a questão da Água para o Desenvolvimento Sustentável como um dos seus temas centrais, com foco nas atividades humanas, no uso da água em diferentes setores e no desenvolvimento dos países. Para isso, foram definidos quatro tópicos que pretendem abarcar as questões para discussão sob o tema Desenvolvimento, que deverão transformar-se em Sessões Temáticas e palcos de debates durante o 8º Fórum em 2018. São eles:

  1. Água, energia e segurança alimentar (água para produção de alimento/água para energia)
  2. Crescimento inclusivo e sustentável, gestão responsável da água (water stewardship) e indústria
  3. Uso eficiente da água superficial e subterrânea – urbana e rural
  4. Infraestrutura para gestão e serviços sustentáveis de recursos hídricos

Considerando esse conjunto de tópicos sobre Desenvolvimento:      

  1. Quais os maiores desafios em cada tópico que interessam à sociedade civil e às comunidades e que deveriam ser debatidas durante o 8º Fórum Mundial da Água?
  2. Como esses desafios se relacionam com problemas na sua cidade, comunidade ou arredores?

Suas respostas vão ajudar a organização do Fórum na definição das Sessões Temáticas e de outras oportunidades de debate presencial durante o evento.

Thanks Georges for your valuable input.  I do agree with most of your comments.  I would like to focus the discussion on 2 dimensions as suggested:  1. Are the populations aware of the crisis situation? (If so who and where?  If not who and how to make them aware?).  2.  How do we get the "Media" more actively involved in this? Especially taking into consideratino all of the information we currently have from the Media...what additional or more effective PR can the media be doing or can the Media be more effectively utilized for more impact?

Thanks Christian for your comments.  The statistics mentioned are alarming to say the least.  Your specific reference to the "Innovative Fog Collectors".  Any informatino as to why this technology is stalling in terms of going forward?  Any potential to overcome barriers and perhaps create the awareness among a wider audience?  Any sucessful results or case studies in the application of this technology on the ground?

Amelia thanks for your very valuable input.  There's a lot of interesting ideas you've mentioned namely educating local populations; use of indegenous knowledge, the role of the banks etc.  I think these are important and key actors.  Wrt to the banks are you categorizing this sector as a donor or a stakeholder who can play the role of a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) stakeholder?  In all of these it would be good if you can list one (or perhaps two) "successful" activities in Brazil whereby then we could perhaps develop further into a more detailed case study.  This will help us to solicit "real impact" from tried and tested activity (or even perhaps a Policy) which can be shared...Leia mais

I agree on the education as one of the major challenges for water bodies preservation. In Brazil, it is important to deal with this question together with solid waste issues, since they occasionally generate problems together, like flooding in urban areas.

Many Thanks Saara, I 100% agree with you and Lalith. Brazil is one of many who experiencing this devastating situation relaetd to water pollution. Many environmental and water related programme are happening in Brasil, so its time to think on why these project itself are not enough to solve it? 

Could it be related to governance, or enforcing of regulation, or financial, or anything else like lack of caapcity and awareness?

Some food for thought for all of us I guess..

This is an answer to Amelia, but, I think, it worth sharing to the whole list as, at the end, I'm asking a open question to all of us.

Good point both Amelia and George,

I think the world population is not aware enough OR not feeling an enough burden of this to act. I think social inequity, poverty, governance failures are causing slow action and most vulnarable are the poor and marginalized people. It's a good point to discuss further..

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development has estimated that by 2030, 47% of the world’s population will live in water-stressed regions (OECD, 2008). The Mediterranean Region is experiencing significantly lower than average rainfall, with severe impacts on rainfall-dependent settlements, industries and the environment. Regarding drinking water, about 14 million people in Europe do not enjoy access a basic drinking-water source, and 62 million people do not have access to piped water on premises. Seven out of ten people without access to a basic drinking-water source live in rural areas....Leia mais

Great, Cliff. There are the section "People" and "Finance" that we can also look at and participate. It seems a great platdorm to share ideas and solutions on water enhacement technologies. I go for "high-risk and high-gain" social impact where your knowledge on social innovation, entreprenuership and ITC can contribute significantly regarding water management. Cristian

WRT to major challenges under topic a., it seems that because of the  water criases;droughts and floods in some countries, almost immediate remedies and solutions are necessary.  Depsite all the debating, theorising and documentation of recommendations in the past, immediate action to counter the impacts on local populations  require implementation actions inlcuding:

Será que a energia produzida pelas hidroelétricas é a solução mais eficaz para o Brasil ? Ou estamos ficando reféns de uma unica fonte de energia ?

Creio que a diversificação por fontes naturais pode ser uma alternativa sustentável se associada a políticas sociais assentes na educação ambiental.

No caso do Brasil, acho que falta planejamento estratégico de longo prazo para o setor energético. O desenvolvimento de um país não pode ficar à mercê dos interesses das elites políticas, econômicas ou regionais.

Thanks Monika for initiating the discussion with a very valuable comment focusing on a very important topic namely "Advocacy/Education". Welcome also to the e-discussion. The case in reference namely Brazil sounds a lot like the situation where I come from namely Sri Lanka. It would be good to distill or breakdown your issues further in order to structure a more coherent discussion and therefore will you be able to identify a few key issues in terms of educating the school children, communities, private sector, government officials etc. basically the experience in Brazil, to move forward the discussion....Leia mais

Boa tarde

Parabéns à iniciativa. Estive em Marselha no 6º Forúm Mundial da Água em 2012 e foi um sucesso. Estarei em Brasília e pretendo alargar a discussão para novas temáticas no quadro da sustentabilidade e governança da água, nomeadamente o papel das comunidades locais.

Oi Francisco ! O Instituto Bioatlântica - Ibio, além de responder como agência da bacia do rio Doce tem trabalhos com comundiades rurais na região. Espero que essa dica ajude na sua investigação. Se possível, compartilhe conosco os resultados da sua pesquisa.

Hi Monica ! Thank you for your comment. I definetely agree with you. One of the major challenges for a sustainable use of water is education and, to be more precise, environmental education. Unfortunately, developing countries such as Brazil have a long way to go. On the other hand we now have communication tools such as this platfrom enabling us to speak to people over the world. In Peru they have recently approved a legislation on private & public partnerships. Companies interested in investing in sanitation infrastructure will have a reduction in their tax payments. I will look into this matter and get back to you in the next 24 hours with further details....Leia mais

The major challenge is to convince and educate the general population on the importance of their contribuition to save water and to keep it clean. In the city of Rio de Janeiro this is a major problem as well as in other parts of the country. There is a notion that the water resources are so abundant that there is no need to conserve it clean. Communities dispose their garbage and sewage in the rivers, there is no notion of the importance of reforestation to maintain the water resources, and there is poor planing from government authorithies. If we keep on doing things the same way we will just get worse results and future generations will not have enough water to live on.

hi all

Also to add my voice to that of Monica, even if clean water is provided from either borehole or the water system, it gets polluted or contaminated  during transporting by the carriers  from source to point of usage or even the containers or the hands are not turely kept clean. We will have to marry the culture of personal and environment hygiene with effective use of water
