Water is a basic human right

“The Global Water Initiative: Implications of Climate Change and Variability on African Water Resources”, a three-day conference co-ordinated by Cambridge Judge Business School’s Cambridge Centre for Energy Studies and held at Downing College, University of Cambridge, brought together academics from all over the World to openly debate these truly daunting questions of environmental sustainability in the face of climate change.

Sherry Ayitey, Honourable Minister for Environment, Science & Technology, Ghana, believes the issue of water resources is one of basic “human rights”. She says that in this inter-connected age the developed world needs to embrace the problems the developing world is facing.
