Panama has joined the international initiative that commits the Central American country to take “important and measurable measures over the next decade to ensure effective management of water resources,” the environment ministry said Saturday.
This is the Water Witness Initiative and the CDP, which includes the governments of the UK, Finland, Malawi and Peru, among others, which also proposes to “implement the water footprint as a management strategy”.
“With this signature, Panama certifies its commitment to conserving water resources and promotes other initiatives, such as the Reducing Your Company’s Water Footprint Program, which seeks to promote company-wide quantification of the water footprint throughout the national territory,” said My Environment.
Water Witness explains that with the CDP and its government partners, they are “asking companies, governments, civil society, and external support agencies to join in a collaborative effort to change the way the global economy interacts with the aquatic environment and the resilience of local communities”.
