U.N. SG Ban Convenes High-Level Emergency Panel To Discuss Political Responses To Decreasing Water Supplies

The Guardian: Ban Ki-moon gathers heads of state for political response to water scarcity
“The U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has convened an emergency panel of heads of state to prompt a political response to the world’s increasing scarcity of water. The high-level panel on water will find ways to coordinate the often piecemeal political decisions made by the plethora of regulators, governments, companies, and individuals who draw from dwindling water reserves. It will also raise a widely neglected problem to the highest level of political discourse…” (Mathiesen, 1/21).
