Safeguard and guarantee access to water – these objectives have become increasingly urgent due to the pandemic which is ravaging the world. The National Bar Council and the Italian Commissioner’s Office for Italy’s participation in Expo Dubai have been working for some time together on the topic of the sustainability and availability of water resources – an issue which will give rise to some interesting discussions not only at initiatives organised at the Italy Pavilion but also with the other Countries at the Universal Exhibition.
“‘Connecting minds, creating the future’ are the inspirational words for Expo Dubai,” explains Francesco Greco, the Dubai Commission Coordinator of the National Bar Council, “but we cannot possibly think about forging the future without ensuring that basic human rights are respected and protected”.

The aim of the memorandum of understanding between the Commissioner’s Office and the National Bar Council is take advantage of the Dubai Expo to promote a new generation of rights relating to the protection of water resources, the environment and biodiversity.
The Expo will be a golden opportunity to ascertain on a global level the state of implementation of environmental rights as well as a chance to table a discussion about the harmonisation and evolution of the various legal systems in the 22 Countries across the three Continents bordering the Mediterranean sea and located in the enlarged Mediterranean area.
