Dada Shambhushivananda sat in on the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI)Conference. The SIWI Conference was based on the premise that benefits of water cannot be isolated from the costs of providing that benefit and therefore, the Provision of Water, like everything else must be a shared responsibility. A philosophy of life that raises the consciousness of one and all towards stewardship of earth’s resources, including water, is a prime necessity. The water week focussed on the following seven basic issues.
- Water availability today and tomorrow
- Making it available everywhere
- To everyone (not only humans)
- In sufficient quantities
- Of acceptable quality
- For all genuine needs
- At the lowest possible cost
