ENFORCING THE AGENDA 2030  –   The main goal of the 8th World Water Forum (WWF) now taking place in Brasilia is to enforce the Agenda 2030, which is a plan the UN adopted in 2015 to oblige the whole world to become ecologically acceptable by 2030. The signers of that document swore to put their Green Revolution into practice in 15 years (12 years from now).

Sustainable Development Goals 6 and 14 of the Agenda 2030 are directly linked to water

When the UN wrote that agenda, its priority was summarized in 17 purposes known as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which can be found by scrolling down the text of the Agenda 2030. Two of those goals – SDG-6 and SDG-14 – are directly related to water.

Now, let me analyze the schedules proposed by WWF to those gathering in Brasilia. The texts I am transcribing were studied by yesterday's participants – March 19. Since the texts are quite numerous I will quote only some texts as samples, taken from its main webpage, and comment briefly on them.

Schedule 1 – March 19, Monday, for the 4:30 - 6 p.m. meeting – Cities require the adoption of sustainable and integrated processes for urban waste and water management. … Despite increasing investments in promoting its rational use, the use of water in urban environments generates significant and increasing volumes of effluents, whose treatment and final destination is of paramount importance. In this scenario, methodologies for water treatment and reuse and waste recycling, associated with campaigns to reduce consumption, are gaining importance to improve life conditions in cities.

In this session the topics of circular economy – reduce, reuse, recycle – water and cities, and treatment and reuse technologies in Europe, including risk analysis, will be discussed. A comprehensive and multidisciplinary perspective of these topics will be provided, including public policy, technology, economic, environmental and social components.

1. It is interesting first to notice the imperative tone taken by the WWF organizers. They act as if they were emperors of the world and can decide on everything at will. They portray themselves as hierophants of a new religion in the name of a divinity - an earth goddess. They show absolutely no concern about asking whether the patients who receive these prescriptions – the cities – are in agreement.

2. The schedule affirms that cities require “sustainable and integrated processes of urban waste and management.” In principle, this is correct. But who is the authority to determine whether a process is sustainable? Is it officials of the municipality, the state or the country? If this were the case, the country would maintain its sovereignty. Or is that authority intended to be a WWF or the UN representative? If this were the case – which is the most probable interpretation – the city and country would lose their autonomy and sovereignty and become a part of the One World Order.

Further, what is meant when it states that a city's process of water management is “integrated”? Integrated with what? Is it the region to which the city belongs or is it to a global government? It seems very much that the latter is what the WWF is imagining.

3. We can see that the solutions proposed for the ambiguous problems of not being sustainable and integrated are found in what is called the “circular economy,” which is explained reducing the use of water, reusing it and recycling it.

Now, the concept of reducing water usage is not difficult to grasp. But what does reusing water mean here? Does it mean to reuse water waste? A housewife could respond: "It's really very simple: after you boil eggs in water, you save it to clean your dishes." I believe this is very reasonable. However, in that same conception could be the plan to save the water from your shower to reuse it to cook your food. The notion of recycling water goes still farther. It seems to include the reuse of sewer water and, through chemical processes, cleanse it of its impurities to make it drinkable again.

These are some first comments this text suggests.

Schedule 2 – March 19, Monday, for the 4:30 to 6 p.m. meeting – The targets under SDG 6 [Sustainable Development Goals n. 6 from the UN Agenda 2030], whether WASH-related [water, sanitation and hygiene] or water resources management-related, can only be achieved if stakeholders from different sectors – e.g. government, NGOs, communities, research, business, etc. – and different backgrounds – including women, youth, indigenous – come together in an inclusive way and find collective solutions to the challenges shared.

This session is meant to present the most successful and inclusive multi-stakeholder platforms and best practices covering the different aspects of SDG 6 and the six main themes of the World Water Forum.

Now, the dictators of the WWF set out to determine who will apply the already decided UN agenda and goals, as well as resolve how such goals must be enforced. It no longer falls to legitimate elected governments to choose how to enforce the agenda. That is to say, the democratic system that almost universally prevails in Western countries where each country has its executive, legislative and judicial branches to govern it – is set aside by the WWF to replace it with a new system.

In the latter the governments have but one vote among the many others that are completely arbitrary. Indeed, what gives NGOs the right to make decisions about the well-being of the world? Why should women and indigenous peoples as such have a vote equal to that of the governments? No clear criteria is set forth to explain why the WWF is now abolishing the democratic system to replace it with “a more inclusive way” in order to “find collective solutions to the challenges shared.”

What we are witnessing is a de facto revolution whereby the prevailing Western system of government is being virtually abolished to be replaced by something that looks like a tribal system.

Schedule 3 – March 19, Monday, for the 4:30 to 6 p.m. meeting – Migration is a universal and common process and is linked to development in multiple ways. When mainstreamed in broader frameworks, especially in development planning, migration can benefit the communities at both origin and destination. Migrants can and do support their home communities through remittances as well as the knowledge and skills they acquire in the process while contributing to the host communities’ development.

Safe, orderly and regular migration can contribute to agricultural development, economic growth, food security and rural livelihoods. Migration can also be a part of climate change adaptation efforts. Yet, those migrants who are poor and low-skilled face the biggest challenges emanating from migration that occurs on involuntary, unsafe and irregular basis. This high-level panel has been organized by FAO on behalf of UN-Water.

Massive immigration into Germany -
What has this to do with water?

I am transcribing this schedule only to show my reader how the WWF is promoting indiscriminate immigration. Actually there is no special relationship between water and immigration. But the WWF had to find a way to bring it to the attention of its participants in order to tell them that if they want to be “in” the ecological religion, they must support immigration everywhere.

It is not difficult to see that this goal favors those who want to destroy, through a massive Muslim immigration, the traditions of a Catholic Civilization that still remain in Europe and the sound traditions of other countries like the United States that still stand for other moral and institutional values.

These are three out of 29 schedules that were offered to the participants yesterday. They allow us to see in what direction the World Water Forum is moving. As WWF continues in the next days, I will also continue with these analyses on other relevant topics its participants are examining.
