Policy aspects of water-related issues : report on a WHO consensus meeting, Yerevan, Armenia 9-11 April 1997
AbstractThe supply and quality of drinking-water have high priority as environment and health concerns in Armenia, where outbreaks of waterborne disease have occurred in recent years. To follow up a 1996 WHO workshop, the Ministry of Health of Armenia, with support from WHO and Italian Cooperation, organized a national interministerial consensus meeting. The participants comprised 53 representatives of the ministries for health, the economy, ecology, finance, agriculture and urban construction and of local government, and two WHO staff. The participants unanimously adopted a resolution with recommendations calling for the development of a financial and legislative basis for the sustainable management of water supplies, the revision of relevant legislation, the creation of multisectoral coordination mechanisms, the development of a master plan for water management, and a pilot project to assist in these tasks. In the resolution, the participants affirmed their intention, as representatives of the appropriate national agencies, to take immediate action to address these issues
