At the end point of the Walk, a petition was offered to the Dutch parliament. The petition requested governments to take action on the water crisis and focuses on two points. First, ensure that Dutch aid will reach the least developed countries and secondly, to commit to a yearly active reporting system to be put in place. The petition was signed by over 18 Dutch organisations working in the field of water and sanitation.
