Values - Passion
Professor Payyazhi Jayashree, Dean Faculty of Business at UOW Dubai, recently had a paper published and featured on the “Water for People” India website. Professor Jayashree is Vice President of the Water for People India Trust Board.
The article highlights the importance of “providing safe access to water and sanitation facilities is a social and demographic imperative and a key driver for gender justice. UN World Water Development Report 2021, released on 21st March 20211, with the theme of ‘Valuing Water’ noted that one of the reasons for mismanagement of water is a failure to recognize the variant value of water and lack of involvement of multiple actors in decisions related to water usage. Given that divergent stakeholder groups accord different value to water, an inclusive and holistic approach to water management is thus recommended, for policies and practices related to water governance to be developed and implemented in an equitable manner.”
