An Interfaith Statement to the 4th World Water Forum
March 2006

We, members of the faith community within the United States, offer this statement for consideration by Ministers and all stakeholders participating in the 4th World Water Forum as solutions are sought for existing and expected water problems around the world.  Of special significance to us is how the most vulnerable and voiceless will fare: future generations, low-income and otherwise marginalized people, other threatened species and whole bioregions.  We hope that the principles presented herein will continually be raised up during the Forum as decisions are made and as the Ministerial Declaration is prepared.  We believe that the observance of these principles can help people of good will reach solutions that will demonstrate justice and nurture peace throughout the world.
