Today, the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) discusses on the topic of the
Allocation of Water.The delegation of Nigeria perceives the statement of the United States – to trade water and not give it away for free – to be morally not acceptable. Furthermore, the delegations of Nigeria, Russia, Columbia and Cuba want to look at the problem from an economic, ecological, social and cultural side. They put forward a program which would include raising taxes for companies that produce water to improve the governments water infrastructure. That project would also increase the awareness of water scarcity.
