Secretary Haaland Represents U.S. at U.N Water Conference

The secretary highlights U.S. actions to address climate crisis.

The United Nations (UN) held their 2023 Water Conference in New York City, where Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland and Ambassador to the U.N. Linda Thomas-Greenfield served as the heads of the U.S. delegation.

Secretary Haaland went on to deliver the United States’ national statement to the assembly, reaffirming America’s commitment to work with the international community. She also highlighted efforts made by the Biden administration to fight the water and climate crisis facing the globe, such as Congress’ work with USAID, financial contributions to water equity funds, and recent legislative investments into Tribal water security.

“In my Pueblo, we sing, dance, and pray for rain. But prayers alone cannot help us to navigate this crisis,” said Secretary Haaland. “We must act swiftly and together to defend the long-term prosperity of communities everywhere.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That Secretary Haaland’s leadership at this conference brought hope to the crisis facing the world.
  • That the U.S. works closely with her allies for the benefit of all.
  • That the Lord leads President Joe Biden as he leads the United States.
