Solving US and Global Water Inequities: Sharing Solutions from Around the World

Lack of clean water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) is still a global crisis associated with excess deaths among children, high morbidity, and crippling development. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #6 is to provide access to clean water, adequate sanitation and hygiene for everyone by the year 2030. Access to WASH is a stated public policy goal of all nations, yet every single country still experiences WASH inequalities. The Global Water Alliance announces its 12th annual conference, in association with the Water Center at Penn (WCP) and Wharton’s Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership (IGEL), with the theme of "finding solutions to water inequities."
