N-ICE work


In NCE 16 June, you said that international development will be given a higher profile within the ICE. This is welcome news.

As concerned human beings and engineers, especially civil/ environmental engineers, can we look the other way when one billion people in the world are without clean drinking water and sanitation?

It is timely to think about these issues, especially since the G8 meeting will be held in Scotland this time. I hope NCE will support total debt cancellation, trade justice and aid where necessary for all the world's poor countries.

Also, if the ICE supports the above objectives, they will be supporting their fellow civil engineers working hard in their respective countries to continue their good work in bringing the necessary water, sanitation and infrastructure projects, which are sorely needed, to fruition.

Surely it's one of the best ways to show the ICE's solidarity with professionals in developing countries?
