Solution Zone TV Presents: Stephanie Lyons from Water Aid
Solution Zone TV Presents: Stephanie Lyons from Water Aid who is at the 23rd UN climate conference to speak to decision makers – from government ministers and donors to civil society and business leaders – about why they should prioritise clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene in adaptation plans.
Where does WASH fit in climate change adaptation decisions?
We know that people cannot adapt to climate change without access to sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services. In the wake of increasingly severe climate impacts – such as this year’s hurricanes and flooding in the Americas and South Asia – access to water and sanitation services is one of the first things people need. Reliable WASH services are a foundation for recovery after disasters and also help people deal with slower-onset changes in the environment. To be resilient to climate change, communities need WASH services that are well designed and maintained to last. Find out more at:
