April 26, 2005 - CSD13 in New York

For a simple and well-received monitoring

"...I believe that we should first make sure that monitoring does not appear as a constraint... Everyone should perceive it as an outstretched hand, as the expression of consideration and respect. It should be the manifestation of an interest, in the moral sense of the word. It's a call, and through that call, there is recognition."

March 22, 2005 - World Water Day

To Whom it may concern

"Will the world survive the lack of concern of its people? Will we continue to be more spendthrift than frugal? World Water Day gives us the opportunity to address these questions. Here, water is lacking. There, it's polluted. In many places, it's wasted. The resource, we can see, is not guaranteed. Many figures demonstrate this reality. Let's not manipulate them. Reality is hard enough, as is poverty..."
