A speech by the World Health Organisation about “establishing guidelines for the privatisation of water” “Most honourable Chairs, fellow Delegates, hard working Add Staff and dear guests. Providing access to water is one of the most effective instruments in promoting health and reducing poverty. 17% of the global population lacked access to safe water resources[…]
102 delegates in one room and it is comparatively quiet. How can this be? The Russian delegate gives us the answer right before he delivers the opening speech to his resolution about increasing international efforts to prevent terrorist attacks: “Very hard work” went on “all night long”.
