There are contradictions and differences on the Sole Authority and the Plurinational Water Advisory Council on the latest draft Water Law, which is discussed in the Committee on Food Sovereignty. In addition to the report presented for the second debate in 2010.
In both documents are included the two institutions as part of the National Water Sistem and the rectory is given to the Single Water Authority.
In Article 221 of the 2010 draft it is mentioned as “an instance of participation and protagonic in the monitoring, evaluation and public policies oversight formulation in water issues”, while in the draft it is defined as “national advisory body on formulation, planning, evaluation and participatory monitoring of water resources.”
Another difference that is recorded is that the 2010 report provides that the Council will be chaired by the head of the “National Secretariat”, composed in a 50% by the State at all levels and another 50% of representatives of civil society.
But in the last text on the draft it is proposed that the Council has a president and civilian representatives integrate it.
