UNESCO & Greywater

I just returned from a marathon trip to Paris where I presented two papers at a conference on the Draft Articles on the Law of Transboundary Aquifers at the UNESCO headquarters located just a stone's throw away from the Eiffel Tower. So much snow fell over the past week, that I was turned away from the trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower, not once, but twice, and one time was with a pre-paid ticket that was apparently non-refundable or reusable due to inclement weather. Oh well, the trip was not a total dud, as my visit to the *Champs* led to a *free* ticket to climb the arch for an eye-popping view of Paris.

The connection to UNESCO and greywater? The attached picture is from the training that I provided in concert with UNESCO PCCP coordinator in Perugia a couple of months ago. Note the use of greywater in the water negotiations in the ficticious Sandus River Basin (blue arrow). Greywater is increasingly becoming recognized as part of the water portfolio of *nations*.

Go *grey* or get blown away!
