Stop weaponising water

Dear All,
I am sharing this letter by Prof. Lyla Mehta and Alan Nicol that voices concerns many of the sector professionals likely share. It highlights that stopping water supplies is against humanitarian laws and constitutes a war crime. It also urges Western governments to focus on peace through diplomacy rather than military response.

Please also consider signing this petition by Water Integrity Network, which calls
  • for immediate cessation of weaponisation of water in conflicts,
  • All nations to uphold the Geneva Principles at all times
  • for the UN to develop a process to monitor such actions and penalisation.
Regards
