#JamaicaGleaner #Water #NWC #Drought OCTOBER 28, 2021: There are calls for the formation of a robust national water-conservation plan and the roll-out of a public-education campaign to educate citizens of its importance, especially in light of the impact of climate change on weather patterns regionally and the increasing instances of droughts. Speaking at a Gleaner Editors’ Forum on Wednesday, October 27, Basil Fernandez, rapporteur and former managing director of the Water Resources Authority (WRA), said that despite the 2019 creation of a national water-sector policy (NWSP) addressing issues of management and conservation, no steps have been taken to implement the plan.
