July 28th: PARALLEL EVENT WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE WATER TRIBUNE IN EXPO ZARAGOZA 2008

URA (Basque Water Agency) and UNESCO Etxea together with the United Nations Office to support the International Decade for Action Water for Life 2005-2015, organised as a parallel event to the Water Tribune a roundtable which sought to contextualise, within the framework of the world water crisis, the need to promote innovative finance formulas in order to fulfil the water and sanitation-related Millennium Development Goals.

This debate wished to guide the need to commit the actors of multilateralism (civil society, local or regional entities) in their support with human and financial resources, in order to achieve access to water which is denied to 1,100 million people, and to return the dignity of adequate sanitation to the 2,600 million who lack even the simplest latrine.

Participating in the debate was:

- Mr. Carlos Fernndez-Juregui, coordinator of the United Nations Office supporting the International Decade for Action Water for Life 2005-2015.

- Mr. Gonzalo Pizarro, Support team for the United Nations Development Programmes Millennium Development Goals.

- Ms. Josefina Maestu, Economic Analysis Coordinator of the DMA, Ministry for the Environment and Rural and Marine Affairs.

- Mr. Philippe Suinen, Director General of International Relations for the Region of Wallonia.

- Mr. Tomas Epalza, Director General of URA (Basque Water Agency).

- Coordinator: Mr. Mikel Mancisidor, Director of UNESCO Etxea.
