The 5th World Water Forum will be held on 16-22 March 2009 in Istanbul, Turkey. PSI will be represented at the forum with a delegation of 55 people from 25 affiliated unions.
The Alternative Water Forum will be held on 20-22 March, also in Istanbul. PSI will be present at both events.
Our objectives at WWF5 will be: to critique the privatisation and commercialisation agenda and to advocate appropriate policies for building quality public services in these sectors. At the Alternative Forum (AF), we will work to strengthen our alliances. In both the WWF and AF, we will be looking for media coverage.
The PSI message can be summarised into two main headings: “The Financial Crisis and the water and sanitation sector” and “Quality Public Water and Sanitation services”. To see all posts on the World Water Forum, select World Water Forum in Categories in the left column.
