Where the Rubber Hits the Road: Addressing Inequalities in Access to WaSH

This panel discussion will take place on Thursday, October 16th at 8:30 AM in Grumman Auditorium. The purpose of the panel discussion is to engage panelists and the audience in a conversation focused on developing an understanding of whether or not we are indeed reducing inequalities in access to WaSH. Our panel will consist of national level decision-makers, international and local observers, and donors who will discuss what the current data suggests, what types of issues need to be overcome to make programs successful, whether there’s commitment at all levels of society to reduce inequalities as well as a multitude of related questions. For more information and for a list of the panelists, please see the session flyer.
