Community-led water resource management: The secret to success


Humana People to People will participate at World Water Week organized by SIWI in Stockholm (August 25 - 30, 2019). World Water Week is the annual focal point for global water issues. SIWI believes that water is key to future prosperity and that together, they can achieve a water wise world.

The rural-urban divide in Access to services is clear all over the world, particularly relating to water. Despite its key role in reducing mortality and contributing to a wide variety of Agenda 2030 outcomes, sustainable water management remains elusive. 785 million people still don’t have access to clean water close to home (WHO/UNICEF, 2019)

The effects of climate change add complexity to providing lasting results for communities. These challenges present significant opportunities for innovation to provide sustainable solutions when communities are empowered to take the lead.

In this exhibition, Federation Humana People to People will share insights from experiences on the extensive positive impacts that empowering families and communities to effectively manage their water supply can have on addressing key inequalities, challenging harmful gender dynamics, nutrition, and maternal and child health in rural settings.
