The For win these emergencies we don't have to forget that
we have to refer to all the citizens and urge their direct
action. Do it in accordance with the possibilities and the
opportunity of everyone.
Through the civil and democratic pressure toward the institutions;and
in general toward the powerful,publics and private.Like
this, with the obligation in oneself and through the instruments
of the voluntary service and of the not-governative organization.
The topic of the water resources of the drink and safe water
and of the basic hygienic conditions,is essential for every
hope of future for the African society. There is the space
and the duty for the initiatives that comes from lower.
As follow we show you some of them that we realize.
The Initiative for water of the local and regional Authority,
wrote in Bologna in 2003 by delegates of the civil society
and of the local European administrations. Severals European
regions have share with Green Cross the aims and targets:
Severals European regions are going in this direction; Italy,
France, Spain and Sweden. The prevention of the possible
conflicts on the use of the water resources for the trans-national
basin is the second aspect that see occupied Green cross,
with the Unesco collaboration. We have realized a first
action beside the population and the institutions of the
countries of the Okavengo's basin and Volta. But how forget
that the Zambesi and the Senegal are esteemed between the
basins trans-international more of risk of future conflicts?
At the end there is the direct intervention with project
on the field. In primis a project in Burkina Faso. "
A hope for the Sahel", aimed at the restore
of old wells and tanks how always happen, but with an innovation
that concern in the get back, the sanification and the storage
of the rain-water. The projects see the collaboration with
the European Institute of Design of Milan and with the "Monticchio
Gaudianello".All these and other interventions are
possible and more meaningful if we have one element: the
certainty of a legal international status on the right on
the water's access. On this, Green Cross is occupied in
one international consulting on the principles for one International
Convention. The principles are approved by more of 1.100
delegates of 100 Ong all over the world, reunited in Barcellona
