The 2nd Alternative World Water Forum took place from the 17th to the 20h of March in Geneva and it constituted the result of countless interventions implemented during the last years by social and international organizations from all the continents. The Forum identifies as its priority the elaboration of integrated strategic plans, which are based on the 4 fundamental principles of rational use of the planet's water resources:

a.) Water is a fundamental human right,

b.) water is a common good,

c.) water is a public good and therefore governments should ensure its availability and

d.)water must be subject to democratic administration.


The Voluntary Humanitarian Action "ANTHROPOMANIA" was the only Greek NGO to participate in the Forum, through its participation in the program "Water: Common Good for Humanity and Basic Right for All", funded by the European Commission and coordinated by the Centro di Volontariato Internazionale from Italy.
