Loic Fauchon Closing Speech for Cairo Water Week 2022
The Cairo Water Week 2022 was held from October 16 to 19 in Egypt, under the theme "Water at the heart of climate action", bringing together political leaders and global actors in the water community. The World Water Council, historical partner of the event, was present.
Loic Fauchon had the honor to participate in the official high-level closing of the session on water policies, which was intended to bring messages for the COP 27 through the "Cairo Call for Action" and to prepare the next United Nations International Conference on Water in New York in 2023.
During his closing speech, Loic Fauchon reminded us of the importance of making the voice of water heard, as it is still too often in the background, and of providing answers to populations in difficulty:
"Make water security and savings a global priority for policy makers."
"Completely rethink the mechanisms for financing the water sector in the poorest countries."
"Hydrodiplomacy is dialogue, again and again dialogue! "
"Promote innovative and non-conventional water resources coupled and linked to renewable energy."
"We need a real harmony between water for humans and water for nature."
"These are very simple principles regarding water: security , finance, governance and sharing."
