Aqua Publica's Vice President presents at the conference on 'The management of a common good: access to drinking water for all', Rome

Vatican posterOn 8 November 2018, Alessandro Russo (Gruppo CAP), Vice-President of Aqua Publica, presented the perspectives from the municipal water management point of view during the conference organised in Rome (Italy) by the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development: 'The management of a common good: access to drinking water for all'. 

The conference gathered experts from a diversity of organisations to discuss how to improve access to water globally. Mr. Russo participated, on behalf of Aqua Publica Europea, in the session on Governance and Responsibility. 

In the context of this event, Pope Francis shared a message, emphasising the necessity and urgency to improve access to clean water and the importance of the "recognition of access to drinking water as a right flowing from human dignity, and therefore incompatible with the concept of water as a commodity".
