Uniting for Water: Murcia and Valencia Leaders’ Call

Central to their demands is the recognition of the Tajo-Segura transfer as indispensable, urging the government to prioritise water treatment and reuse initiatives. They argue that a unified approach is crucial to guaranteeing equal access to water for all, as enshrined in the Constitution.

The Urgency of a National Water Pact

López Miras highlights the importance of solidarity and national cohesion, stressing that a National Water Pact would put an end to territorial rivalries and promote unity. Despite acknowledging the central government’s role in driving this initiative, he expresses scepticism about its commitment to effective coordination. Both leaders underscored the urgency of the matter, particularly in light of unequal access to water resources and the increasing strain on existing infrastructure.

A Call to Action: Protecting Water Resources

Their manifesto also outlines the necessity for investment in water infrastructure, efficient water management systems, and sustainable practices to address future challenges. They stated that the Tajo-Segura transfer remains essential for the future prosperity of their regions, advocating for its protection against further depletion.
