Re: Immediate Sign On to SDG Right to Water and Sanitation Letter
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Appended is an alert from the Medical Mission Sisters regarding a growing concern about the right to water and sanitation as one of the key components of the evolving SDGs. SD Ed. Caucus member Celine Paramundayil has a message for us to circulate and to consider your own organization sign-on to the appended letter of concern ["Call For Signatures"].
All the best,

The “zero draft” SDG document <http://www.worldwewant2015.org/node/442161> that was
released this week did not contain any reference to the human right to water and sanitation. Please circulate this for sign on among your colleagues and networks and for your consideration if your own organization wishes to add their signature.
many thanks Celine
Subject: Re: Immediate Sign On to SDG Right to Water and Sanitation Letter
The Mining Working Group at the UN, with NGO partner organizations to ensure that the human right to water and sanitation is included within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) framework. Unfortunately the “zero draft<http://www.worldwewant2015.org/node/442161>” SDG document that was released this week did not contain any reference to the human right to water and sanitation.
The SDG process will determine the official international development agenda for the next 15 years. Given that the Millennium Development Goal process, which set targets for 2000-2015, failed drastically in the area of sanitation and given MDG targets on drinking water failed to prioritize the needs of the most vulnerable and marginalized communities, it is vital that the same mistakes not be repeated within the SDG process. Furthermore, we feel that the Human Right to Water and Sanitation will be an important tool in our struggle to prevent the SDG agenda from being co-opted to promote greater corporate access to water resources and services.
Please join this important advocacy by:
Signing onto the letter by sending a message to SDGrighttowater@gmail.com<mailto:SDGrighttowater@gmail.com> with the name of your Congregation, a contact name and country you are based in, by June 11th * Circulating the letter within your networks to sign on at SDGrighttowater@gmail.com<mailto:SDGrighttowater@gmail.com>
Adapting the letter to your Congregation and sending a copy to the ambassador representing your country at the UN (see attached contact list)
Tweeting the need for #owg12 to explicitly name the right to water and sanitation in the #SDGs including #SDGH20 Early next week, the letter will be translated and available in Spanish, French and Portuguese.
Many thanks, Aine On behalf of the Mining Working Group at the UN

Risk management – Principles and guidelines ISO 31000:2009 provides principles and
generic guidelines on risk management.
ISO 31000:2009 can be used by any public, private or community enterprise, association,
group or individual. Therefore, ISO 31000:2009 is not specific to any industry or sector.
ISO 31000:2009 can be applied throughout the life of an organization, and to a wide range
of activities, including strategies and decisions, operations, processes, functions, projects,
products, services and assets.
ISO 31000:2009 can be applied to any type of risk, whatever its nature, whether having
positive or negative consequences.
Although ISO 31000:2009 provides generic guidelines, it is not intended to promote
uniformity of risk management across organizations. The design and implementation of
risk management plans and frameworks will need to take into account the varying needs of
a specific organization, its particular objectives, context, structure, operations, processes,
functions, projects, products, services, or assets and specific practices employed.
It is intended that ISO 31000:2009 be utilized to harmonize risk management processes in
existing and future standards. It provides a common approach in support of standards
dealing with specific risks and/or sectors, and does not replace those standards.
ISO 31000:2009 is not intended for the purpose of certification

In de komende decennia zal het voeden van een groeiende wereldbevolking en het garanderen van voedsel- en voedingsveiligheid voor iedereen, afhangen van de verhoging van de voedselproductie. Deze verhoging kan echter alleen gerealiseerd worden als we erin slagen om op een duurzame wijze om te springen met de meest strategische en eindige hulpbron waar we over beschikken: water.
