|About Water for the People Network|
Our vision: Water for the people, by the people
Water for the People Network (WPN)- Asia is a Philippine-based network established in 2006 to support various water-related struggles and victories against water privatization at the grassroots across the globe. Focused on presenting the ill-effects of water privatization especially of the Southern countries, WPN-Asia presents community-based strategies as well. With more than 100 members around the globe, WPN-Asia stands by indigenous communities, farmers, fisherfolk, and urban poor, especially the women in these sectors who are the first ones to be affected by water problems.
Our mission: Collective action for an equitable water future
Water for the People Network seeks to put forward the People’s Water Code as an alternative paradigm that promotes people’s inalienable right to water and their collective right to manage this precious resource. As such, WPN-Asia is against any form of private, foreign corporate-led control—from the conservation and rehabilitation of water resources to the operation and management of water infrastructures and services. Water for the People Network asserts that the people's sovereignty on water is the long-term solution to issues and emerging threats surrounding water.
Our goals: Sustained action for a sustainable water solution
Water for the People Network works in two ways: (1) challenge water-related policies, structures and institutions that compromise the people’s right to water and (2) proactively seek community-based pro-people solutions to such problems. WPN-Asia calls on the world’s peoples, policymakers, and leaders to:
