WaSH inequalities persist in vulnerable minority groups in wealthy countries
In December 2019, the Water Institute at UNC published its 14th WaSH Policy Research Digest, entitled “WaSH inequalities persist in vulnerable minority groups in wealthy countries.” This Digest addressed a perplexing yet critical challenge in trying to reach universal access to safe drinking water and sanitation for all—reaching the underserved in high-income countries. Most residents of high-income countries have access to high levels of water and sanitation service. Yet even in these countries there are often pockets of people—often those who are traditionally discriminated against, vulnerable or marginalized—that lack access to similar levels of service. Through three brief literature reviews, the Digest highlighted three such examples: the Roma in Europe, Black and Latino minorities in the United States, and indigenous people in Canada.

Please join us for a webinar to discuss the findings. Our panelists will be:
• Catarina de Albuquerque, CEO, Sanitation and Water for All and
former Special Rapporteur on the Human Right to Water
• Jacqueline MacDonald Gibson, Chair, Department of
Environmental and Occupational Health, Indiana University,
Bloomington
• Clarissa Brocklehurst, Adjunct Professor, Water Institute at UNC
• Carmen Anthonj, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Water
Institute at UNC

The panel will be moderated by Aaron Salzberg, Director, Water Institute at UNC

Date and Time: Wednesday, March 18th at 9:00 am EST (14:00 GMT; 15:00 most of Europe )

Mar 18, 2020 09:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
