Our Philosophy

Our destiny is unequivocally interlinked with the larger ecological system of the planet. Water is the prerequisite for all forms of life on earth. The study of water points to the objective fact of unity and interconnection of all living beings. Therefore, every living being has the same natural right over water as humans and all living organisms must have unrestricted access to water. Since water is the source of life, we strongly believe that it shall not be the subject of commodification by any means in any form.

Historically, water has been used as an instrument of discrimination and exclusion by social institutions. A just and equitable society cannot be imagined without the just and equitable distribution of water. Hence, natural right to water must be protected and promoted for the full realisation of human rights.

In order to achieve this ideal, we must not only ensure Universal Water Access, but must also recognise our collective responsibility to protect water sources. The hydrological cycle is intricately linked with natural landscape. Drastic changes to natural landscape made by human intervention driven by the dominant narrative of development have put immense stress on this delicate balance of nature.

 

We must work toward achieving socially just and ecologically sustainable models of water governance in order to safeguard this precious common resource.
