The draft Budapest Summit statement is quite comprehensive . However I like the statement to give more emphasis on two aspects: Climate change and water disasters and IWRM as a basic approach for water development and management. IWRM is accepted as principle by many countries but the progress in practice is quite less . The Budapest summit should discuss what should be done to take forward this approach in actual practice so that many pressing problems in water and related sectors can be addressed more effectively

JOEL SAMUEL FEYISOLA Water is live he who gives water gives life therefore:Budapest Summit should emphasis that each Head of Country should vote the 50% of their annual budget on provision of quality clean water to their society.

Maureen Mungai It would be a challenge for the statement to address country specific solutions because the issues faced by each country are unique and as such, cannot be generalized. The Rio+20 outcome reiterated the importance of ‘progressive realization of access to safe and affordable drinking water and basic sanitation for all’ (Rio+20: The future we want. water and sanitation section, point 120) this puts the burden of change/compliance on governments. A conference showcasing some of the best practices around the world on the issue of water and sanitation would go a long way in motivating innovative solutions.
