Book launch: Water Ethics

Academic dean addressing audience at Water Ethics book launch event

Water is essential for all life and is a key aspect of human rights, yet unsafe water is responsible for 1 million deaths each year, and 29% of the world still does not have access to safe drinking water. The book ‘Water Ethics: Principles and Guidelines', was launched by Globethics.net earlier this year, and brings ethical values and principles to bear on current water issues. The book provides guidance on solutions that improve the chances of positive outcomes for all concerned. The text was authored by an international group of experts, and was approved by the Globethics.net Board of Foundation.

 A panel of experts, including Globethics.net Academic Dean, Amélé Ekué, Evelyne Fiechter-Widemann (Researcher on water ethics based in Singapour), and Benoit Girardin (Lecturer at the Geneva School of Diplomacy and International Relations; former Swiss Embassador) aimed to answer the following questions:

  • What is the role of ethics in water management?
  • Does ethics play a role in water availability, the value of water, water treatments, or managing water conflict?
