Water Infrastructure for People and Planet

June 9 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Free

Join Global Water Alliance for a FREE webinar on June 9, 11:30 – 1:30 p.m. EDT entitled, “Water Infrastructure for People and Planet.”

“Billions of people worldwide still live without safely managed drinking water, safely managed sanitation and basic hygiene services, especially in rural areas and least developed countries… Globally, 44 per cent of all wastewater flows generated by households is not safely treated, i.e. treated by secondary or higher processes or with effluent discharges meeting relevant standards.”

WITH THIS WEBINAR we hope to inform and inspire a paradigm shift in the design of water and wastewater infrastructure locally and globally, thereby ensuring public health, environmental sustainability, and climate resilience. Give us two hours and you will leave with tools and practical examples of participatory design to integrate into your work.

The webinar is open to all — professionals and students in the areas of water, wastewater, wetlands, environmental studies, engineering, public health, planning, communications and public affairs, attorneys, municipal officials, those interested in public-private partnerships, and anyone interested in water and water infrastructure.

The following topics related to water and wastewater infrastructure will be included: global and local examples large and small with strategies and tools for public private partnerships, environmental sustainability, climate resiliency, watershed and land use considerations, and gray and green infrastructure complimentary approaches. 
 
Register for free to attend for an enriching session with plenty of time for Q&A with the speakers to ensure that you will be able to take the learnings directly into your work moving forward to improve the sustainability of water and wastewater infrastructure!
