Invited by the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Institute, Kabiné Komara alerts on water resources management issues
The former High Commissioner of the Organisation for the development of the Senegal River and former Prime Minister of Guinea indicated that water is the object of covetousness and a kind of competition to ensure control at the local, national, regional and international levels. For him, the future of the States of the world is played with this precious liquid, essential to life, because without water, no life.
Continuing, Kabiné Komara said that the countries that will integrate into their policy, the availability, accessibility and regularity of water as a strategic concern, will survive tomorrow. On the other hand, he warned: "Leaders who take lightly its supply and availability, will compromise their survival and will take the terrible responsibility of pushing their population to exodus or to more or less violent conflicts". He therefore invites the whole world to act quickly.
The speaker also stressed that the issue of water must be a global concern, the business of all and everyone. "The deprivation of water is the worst punishment," he said, calling on youth to change their mentality by informing that the ecological transition is "irreversible. Note that other communications have furnished this day of "The Itinerant School of Peace", which is a training tool established by the Foundation Leaders for Peace, chaired by former French Prime Minister, Jean-Pierre Raffarin. This training aims to ensure the transmission of tools and methods for building peace. It is based on the conviction that peace is built by developing values of tolerance and non-violence in young people.
