Ref proposal 1
I like your idea about the proposal 1. In my opinion I think it is very important that developed countries help the poor, because we were the ones that once prevented their development. Jaume 12:52, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
It is true that developed countries would provide aid to underdeveloped countries, to prevent natural disasters and the 1.5 million people have died of the water problem. Governments of poor countries could try to make it potable water but would first have to help them achieve development. The rich countries exploit poor and they take advantage of their poor development to prevent the development and thus keep on exploiting its raw materials. María Dolores 13:08, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
There is a difference between poor and rich countries with regard to the water problem. The country has little water rich but always have the economic means to achieve it, and drinkable water and even fecal recycle. Poorer countries have a lot of water but always lacked financial resources to drinkable and channel all the inhabitants. It is very difficult to establish a world law on the distribution and sharing water from the same river, is impossible. Although rich countries to deliver funds to poor countries to fight climate change, this solution is sometimes not feasible due to the corruption of the funds disbursed. The Nile is a serious problem because its basin covers several nations with different interests and large population, it is understandable that the UN acted.-- María 08:08, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

I agree to create a law for water distribution is the same for all countries. Since there are currently water wars. Although it is difficult to establish a law for all countries as there are many economic interests by the most developed countries. When a developed country has rivers and can be supplied with them, this is the case of refusal to share them. María Dolores 12:47, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
I agree to create a global law, but not every country has the same facility to get water. For example many countries of Africa haven't the same opportunities to purchase water that a country in northern Europe and it's too difficult to establish that law for all countries. -- Daniel Jaime 12:50, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
I think this is a good idea.
I think a solution would be to share the water and that everybody would be allowed to use only a certain amount of water every month. This would save water. And every country should receive the same amount of water, reducing the number of quarrel between one country and the other.
I think people should enforce compliance of existing laws referring to contaminations of the waters.

It is true that developed countries provide assistance to the poorest but it is also true that the richest countries exploit the poor for so we can continue to operate its raw materials.
-- Alicia 11:39, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
It is clear that creating a law for everyone would be ideal but today is impossible, since not all countries will agree to distribute the water evenly.-- Laura 11:42, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
I think that your solution might work theoretically but in practice it might not work. Because it always exist greedy leaders that would want the water for them-selfs. --Mattias.W 11:59, 14 April 2010 (UTC) - Sweden
Ref proposal 3
-- Carla 11:54, 13 April 2010 (UTC)I think that although helping poorer countries to develop, this would take considerable time and even more time would pass until these countries would reduce climate change. Moreover, I think that poorer countries also do not pollute as much as developed countries. Those who should invest in climate change should be the rich countries as they are the worst polluters but they don't by due to economic interests. Governments should act quickly and forget their interests because the existence of our planet is at stake.
We don't belive that sending soldiers will help the poor countries to overcome the conflicts. But the other suggestions were good. The waterplants have to be built were the water is going to be used otherwise the transportation costs will make it to expensive to work. Another thing is that the rich countries can't just give the poor countries money, we have to have an open dialog with the countries to make sure that there will be no conflicts. We agree that the money ment for the poor countries should be sent to them. / Torun von Feilitzen and Fredrik Karlsson -- Rosalinda Å. 11:59, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
