WASH Debate: Climate adaptation in the WASH sector: distraction or necessity?

1st Apr 2020

17:00 | 1 April 2020
Dudok | The Hague, the Netherlands

Register for the event happening 1 April 2020

This interactive edition of WASH Debates will focus on climate change and adaptation as it relates to the delivery of safe and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) service delivery.

The following questions will guide the event and discussions:

• While providing sustainable WASH services, and to reach everyone forever, we are running and struggling with various challenges and uncertainties. Now climate change poses another uncertainty for the sector. However, is this truly one of our biggest threats or is climate change used as an excuse?
• This WASH debate seeks to explore and discuss what climate change and adaptation really mean for the delivery of safe drinking water and adequate sanitation, how can we adapt our programming to climate change and what does adaptation mean for financing structures?


More background on the event, speaker bios and our new event location will be added below as it becomes available.

Livestream of the event will be available starting from 17:00 on our Twitter account: @IRCWASH
