Amid the #water crisis in the country, the #Meghalaya cabinet became the first state to approve a draft water #policy to address water issues, #conservation, and protection of water sources in the state.
Prestone Tynsong, Deputy Chief Minister, said, "The policy intends to achieve sustainable development, management and use of water resources with community participation. This will improve health and livelihood and reduce vulnerability among the people. This will also assure of good governance for present and future generations through integrated water resources management and environmental sustainability."
"Issues such as the protection of catchment areas and river pollution have also been outlined in the policy. Community participation is what we are looking for in as we want to reach to the villages with this policy," he said.

Speaking at the @unitednations on global drug reform has been a highlight of my year as a public health practitioner and advocate. There’s so much that goes into drug reform—just consider our ongoing opioid epidemic—the common denominator is that it all goes back to decisions—whether it be how we respond to the issues we have as a nation, who we elect into our offices, or the personal choices we make as members of society. One decision leads to another—every action has a reaction—and one good or bad decision can change the entire course of our lives.
Trauma and decision-making are almost always intertwined. One thing I know is that we ALL deal with trauma in different stages of our lives, and we should never pass judgement on anyone for how they choose to deal with theirs. What we should do is provide support to those people so they know they have better options. Prevention is also intervention. Like my fave hometown hero @realcoleworld said, #choosewisely. I feel like our community has this idea that something is wrong with us if we decide to seek therapy...or something is wrong if we call our strong friends to check on them...we’ve lost some of the greatest entertainers of our time due to drug use...we have to continue to break that stigma and give people the tools they need to heal, and lead healthy lives. We cannot do this without making efforts to tackle poverty, improving access to health, affordable housing, protecting the environment, reducing gun violence and abuse, and protecting the rights of the most marginalized communities. ✊🏽🖤
Our agenda for the day. As well as challenging ourselves with unseen writing tasks, every network meeting, we save a segment for a member of the network to introduce us to something new. Today we analysed Brexit reports courtesy a policy writing workshop with @_raj.c.
Every life, every moment, every day.
Improving the quality of your life at home.
