Water Ethics Charters
Developing written statements of key value principles comprising consensus positions that all stakeholders can endorse.
Global Water Ethics Charter. In collaboration with other organizations, the Institute is working to develop a declaration (charter) prescribing a set of the ethical principles to guide decisions about water use and water ecosystem management.
Local Water Charters provide a tool for integrating water ethics into new plans, policies and programs, as outlined in this short Handbook for Crafting a Local Water Ethics Charter. During 2017 we are working with local partners in Santa Fe, New Mexico to develop a community-led Santa Fe Water Charter.
