Issue Brief Discusses Integration Of WASH, Water Conservation, Climate Resilience

National Resources Defense Council’s “Switchboard”: USAID Needs to Bring Together Safe Drinking Water and Sanitation with Fresh Water Conservation and Climate Resilience in Development Assistance
Elizabeth Shope, an advocate with the NRDC, discusses an issue brief she authored, titled “Connecting Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene with Fresh Water Conservation and Climate Resilience: The Need to Facilitate Integration in Development Assistance.” The brief makes “the case that development projects intended to help these vulnerable populations need to be better integrated and take into account the potential impacts of climate change” and “suggests steps that [USAID], a key player in world efforts to reduce poverty, can take to improve integration in development assistance, which is critical to helping solve major humanitarian challenges,” she notes (8/28).
