22 March 2012

“We’ll need two World Water Forums to define a real water and ecosystems management strategy,” indicates Chris Baker, Program and Strategy Director of the NGO  Wetland International (WI) , during the session “Committing to Bridging the Water Resources Management and Ecosystems Gap” on the 15 March. 

Wetland International (WI), a nonprofit NGO, founded in the United Kingdom in 1954, focuses on wetland protection and sustainable management.  

The meeting had the aim of proposing commitments that address the challenges related to the quality of water and ecosystem resources. Chris Baker welcomed the cooperative agreement for water and ecosystem resource management signed between WI, the Niger River Basin Authority, the Organisation for the Development of the Senegal River and the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube.
