Kali Heard September 28 2015 JUS 444 Dr. Richter Equity and Water Allocation Helen Ingram et al, author of The Importance of Equity and the Limits of Efficiency in Water Resources, argues that clean water should be distributed with fairness, equity, and justice to every human being due to water being essential to maintain life and health. Ingram explains that 1.1 billion people – many in which are poor and living in developing countries – are living without access to drinking-water services; furthermore, people who are rich in money and power frequently benefit more and receive water for reasons other than necessity. Therefore, Ingram wrote this article to signify how important it is that we include the principles of equity when allocating water resources; these principles go beyond self-interest and take into account the effects of those who are at a disadvantage, moreover, it recognizes that everyone has the right to participate in the decision- making process so that everyone’s values and visions are considered equally. Throughout the article, it is clear that Ingram attempts to make a connection with the reader as well as writing with governments in mind; the reader, because she emphasizes the importance each person has in treating water resources in a way that does not diminish it for future generation, and the government, so that people with power realize that equity should be included in the entire decision- making process.
