Water chat -- Thibaut Leloc'h

Thibaut was my roommate during the WWF in Marseille. He also happened to be working for the French Development Agency on access to water in Palestine.

We recorded this 42 min chat [15MB MP3] after a long day of sessions, talking and drinking with water wonks. (He is speaking as an INDIVIDUAL, not a representative of the FDA.)

You should listen to it if you want to know more about the "water apartheid" that Israel is practicing in the occupied territories, and the institutional, logistical and "capacity" constraints that the Palestinians have in taking care of their own water.*

Bottom Line: Palestine has enough problems with development, but Israel is not helping.

* On a related note, watch this video if you are interested in (pro-Israel) media bias in the US.
