News Du Droit de l’eau au Droit à l’eau au Maroc et ailleurs (From Right to Water to Water Right in Morocco and Elsewhere) – Houria Tazi Sadeq – ED. Eddif, Casablanca 2007-07-02

With the objective of investigating how to contribute to an efficient water administration, within the framework of long-lasting environmental development, this book appeals to international rights that refuse to establish a juridical and institutional structure that concerns water as a source of life, social good, cultural politics, economy and geo-politics.

The book values the past of water hydraulics while explaining its socio-religious function. It also brings back into favour the traditional way of handling water, insists on the importance of social acceptance of change and stresses the relevancy for Morocco’s decision makers, as well as communities, to understand the value of water. Houria Tazi Sadeq,a lawyer and juridical expert, holds the title of interdisciplinary UNESCO Chair for Sustainable Water Management. She is also a governor for The World Water Council. She testifies, through this book, of water’s effect of mobilization through a social organizational factor and a democratic tenet.
