Uniting the World for Water: A Global Initiative to Address the Impending Crisis

The collaboration between the United Nations and the World Economic Forum has been revealed as a joint initiative targeting the projected worldwide water crisis expected to occur by 2024.

If you start reading between the lines it will become  clear, very fast that the WEF, and UN are Teaming Up To Initiate Global Water Crisis in 2024. Keep reading…

The first UN Water Conference in 46 years was held in New York in March 2023, with the Netherlands and Tajikistan as co-hosts. Its purpose was to raise awareness about the urgent global water crisis and develop internationally agreed strategies to address water-related goals.

Henk Ovink, the Special Representative for International Water Affairs for the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and Sulton Rah the Special Representative of the President of the Republic of Tajikistan to the Water and Climate Coalition Leaders, expressed their hopes for the conference. They envisioned it as a significant turning point for matters concerning water, similar to the influence the Paris Agreement has had on addressing climate change.

The UN, on its conference website, emphasized the critical role of water in achieving Sustainable Development Goals but noted that progress on water-related targets was significantly off track, posing a threat to the overall sustainable development agenda. Termed “Uniting the world for water,” the project sought to rally global efforts to address this impending crisis.

However, an earlier press conference by the World Economic Forum in 2022 hinted at a different agenda. The Global Commission on the Economics of Water, launched during the 2022 annual meeting, aimed to explore innovative approaches to value and manage water as a common good. The phrase “common good” was highlighted, suggesting a focus on collective control and societal influence.

During the launch of the Commission, speakers, including Alem Tedeneke and co-chairs Professor Mariana Mazzucato, Professor Johan Rockström, and Tharman Shanmugaratnam, revealed the underlying motive. The Commission sought to reshape global perspectives on water and position it as a common good, echoing principles associated with collectivist ideologies.

In a report titled ‘Turning The Tide: A Call To Collective Action,’ released a week before the UN Water Conference, the WEF claimed that the report and its action plan would redefine discussions on water for the 21st century.

Mariana Mazzucato underscored the connection between the water crisis, climate crisis, and the unsuccessful global response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Emphasizing the importance of water as a global commons, she suggested using it as a unifying cause for citizen engagement, framing it as an experiment with the notion of the common good.

The global water crisis seems to be motivated by the belief that previous global issues like the COVID-19 crisis and climate change have failed to bring people together. The focus on a shared goal reflects past inclinations toward collectivist ideas, leading to inquiries about the motives behind this coordinated worldwide effort.
