Re: We need a unified water movement. Here are 5 ways we can achieve it

Clean water is critical to health but we need to look further on why there is no clean water.  Drilling a well and providing clean water is marginal beneficial if sanitation is not addressed.  Sanitation and clean water always seem to be addressed separately instead of as a single subject.  One needs to work with the other!  It is always easier to show a smiling child holding a cup with clean water flowing but  it is hard to show sanitation in the same positive light that makes the donors and workers line up and want to get involved.  We must provide sanitation if water is to have the benefit that it needs to have.

We need a unified water movement. Here are 5 ways we can achieve it

New blog from the Institute of Development Studies!

In this blog, we share 5 ways we can move towards and achieve a unified movement that realises water for all. It's based on a great discussion with Prof Lyla Mehta (Institute of Development Studies and Norwegian University of Life Sciences), Dr Alan Nicol (IWMI), Mr Gourisankar Ghosh (Former Executive Director, Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council, Switzerland), Dr François Molle (Senior Researcher at the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD) and co-editor of ‘Water Alternatives'), and Prof Naho Mirumachi (professor of Environmental Politics at Kings College London and co-director of the Kings Water Centre).
