Help Build a People's Manifesto on Water, Sanitation & Climate Change for General Elections 2014!
Greetings from Water Initiatives Odisha (WIO)!
As a run up to the general elections in 2014, in which Odisha will go for elections for both assembly and parliament constituencies, Water Initiatives Odisha(WIO) is starting a people owned process of preparing people's manifesto on the following issues.
1. Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.
2. River basins, water bodies and ground water resources.
3. Climate change, disasters and ecological livelihoods.
This email is the first request to all of you who would want to be part of this and contribute to the process. We are in the process of forming a state level co-ordination committee and then pursue the 'People's Manifesto' building process.
If you think you can contribute to this important process, please get back to us with your interest areas and preliminary suggestions if any. We shall then get back to you with further details on the process.
Just one thing before I stop penning. As all other campaigns of WIO, this is a voluntary effort and we need you to please volunteer in this most timely effort. Also, if you can support the campaign in any other way, you are most welcome to contact us.
We would also like to take this opportunity to share with you that there is another state level process going on to prepare People's Manifesto for several other developmental issues. Our ideas will feed into that process as well.
This is high time to start acting and make an impact.
Looking forward to hear from you and your support.
Thanks and regards,
Please Note: We have created a new group exclusively for this purpose. Please join the group and give in your suggestions there so that we can compile all your feedback into one document from one place. The group can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/234481360045395/
