Faith-Based NGOs Perspectives on Water Issues. The Economics of Education and Innovation for Sustainability and Growth
MetadataShow full item record
Faith-based NGOs find it important to address the issues of water protection, management and equitable distribution. They emphasise the connection between spiritual commitment and social and ecological practice. The paper examines statements and actions by faith-based NGOs on water issues such as water scarcity, sanitation, water resources management, water-related disasters, pollution, water-related conflicts and gender issues. Christian organisations are the main focus; however Jewish and Muslim contributions are mentioned. The paper argues that the perspectives of faith-based NGOs reflect well the complex physical, social, cultural and spiritual dependence of the human community on water. Faith communities – driven by values, not by profit – are well-placed to take a long-term view of the world’s resources. They offer views on water that should be carefully listened to by water consumers as well as policy makers on national and international levels.
