Water issues are many times referred to as a “wicked” problem because of their social, economic and physical complexities. As conflicts arise, they take many forms; data conflict, interest conflict, identity conflict, value conflict, structural conflict and relationship conflict.
Solving these wicked water problems simply isn’t easy when the complexities are dissected. Ultimate resolve for our water projects can be simple in scope but the difficulties lie in the application of trust.
Trust is built through respectful demonstration and commitment to each other in the long run. Technical solutions is the easy part because technologies and modern methods are usually adequate and available. Working together is the stumbling block. It takes patience, kindness, empathetic understanding and a commitment to each other to bind a society that is built on diversification and a common good.
