Climate Action by Design

Henk Ovink, Special Envoy for International Water Affairs, Kingdom of The Netherlands; Sherpa to the UN/WB High Level Panel on Water

“We have no time to waste. Every indecisive day means more despair, more disasters and less time to mitigate and adapt. The situation is worsening fast and improving it is becoming more costly by the day. Our knowledge and understanding of that future and our capacity to intervene and act have never been this great. We know just about everything that can go wrong and possess all the resources and skills to do something about it. So the biggest disgrace is to look the other way. There is no excuse at all. It is our only chance for a future and our biggest obligation. We must dare to embrace that future in all its complexity, dare to understand it and exploit it for real change. It can and must be done, now. It only requires the will to act and the guts to change. Nothing else.”
