Updates from the Alliance for Water Stewardship

Happy 2011!

Happy New Year from all of us at the Alliance for Water Stewardship! It's the beginning of a New Year-one that we believe will bring us much closer to our goal of a global water stewardship program. We are currently reviewing candidates and will soon have a new Executive Director to lead AWS. The coming year will see significant advancement in the development of an International Water Stewardship Standard with regional and global meetings of the Water Roundtable. We look forward to having a first draft of a global Standard that will undergo field trials and pilot tests in different parts of the world under different conditions. You are currently signed up to receive our monthly newsletter where we are pleased to share updates on the AWS including upcoming events, milestones, and news on the developing global water stewardship program!

The comment period will run from January 11th to February 11th, 2011. The WRT Process can be found, along with comment submission instructions, at: https://sites.google.com/site/wrtpubliccomment.
