WASH Seminar Series: Part 3 – WASH, IWRM, and Climate Change

18 July 2020

Part 3 of the Scaling Up WASH Services in a Pandemic Seminar Series

 

 

The impacts of climate change are being felt across the Asia and Pacific region and threaten to reverse progress made in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH). Services must be urgently extended and strengthened in the face of the severe and unpredictable impacts of a warming world. However, little attention and investments have been given to the effects of climate change on clean water and decent sanitation services.

In the third session of the series, Virginia Newton-Lewis, Director of Policy and Advocacy for WaterAid Sweden, discussed mitigating climate risks for WASH; interlinks between WASH and integrated water resources management (IWRM); and approaches to climate resilient WASH and securing water resources.
