    This obligation to achieve abundance, peace and serenity through sharing. But sharing requires possessing, protecting, safeguarding and respecting. And in this case, we have to take care of water, to spare it with full respect. And the Bali World Water Forum is holding out its arms to us to change the course of water history, to write its future of abundance to achieve shared prosperity. The first milestones have been set by our joint Indonesian and Council team. They are based on three key words: knowledge, finance and governance.
