Background on the issue your vision is tackling:
Drivers of the (re-)emergence of disease at human-animal interface are insufficiently being addressed

Notes from backcasting exercise:
Collective brainstorming on the following questions:
- Which policy measures should be taken?

- There is an internationally binding treaty, that hight-lights the relevance of an international organization for Water Management that includes a stream of work Science-Diplomacy on water access and health water access. Desiritifiaction should also be a stream of work of this organization.

- Access to water as a global public good recognize in PPP and recognize that public goods should be shared. Recognize the right to access heal and safe water especially under pandemic situations it is ensured.
- More media and communication around people to understand the positive values and attributes of the treaty and how water management should be reflected there.
- Highlight the burden of water-communicated diseases with some predictions if we don't do something about it this will happen. Also, make public more information or where we are starting.
- Raising awareness of how important and crucial it is the potential for water-born pandemics.
- Try to involve more civil societies in their campaign and lobbying.
