Peace and Security, sine qua non, without which nothing, we cannot have one without the other.

I spent over three decades working in humanitarian programmes, specifically assuring far-flung communities in developing countries have access to clean drinking water.  I have seen first hand the tremendous impact of lack of access to water on people’s lives – girls’ education, women’s workload, poverty levels.  In addition, I have seen drinking water politicised and used as socioeconomic leverage on poor communities.

In this era of war and terrorism, peace and security issues become more real. 

Peace and security – sine qua non , without which nothing.  We must work together to achieve it, keeping possibility alive.
