The organizers of the Interamerican Dialogue in Water Management are very much indebted to the members of the different committees (the Honorary, Policy Council and the Planning Committees), to the Chairpersons, Moderators, and Facilitators of the roundtable discussions; and to the contributors, for their efforts and commitment that made the Dialogue such a successful event.
This initiative could not have been possible without the financial support of the many contributors at all levels, but very especially to The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The World Bank, Organization of American States, Tennessee Valley Authority, Blockbuster Video, and the South Florida Water Management District. Also, very special thanks go to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, whose facilitation and process design enabled the moderators to guide the roundtable discussions towards a definite and coherent direction, and to the Together Foundation for Global Unity, the provider of the WATERDIALOGUE electronic network platform - a crucial component of the ultimate objective of the dialogue, the Interamerican Water Resource Network.
In the day-to-day preparation of this sizable undertaking, we appreciate the work and counsel of the Global Tomorrow Coalition, our working partner, whose dedication and administrative involvement smoothed the road to the Dialogue and subsequent follow-up to the conference.
