Better water supply and resource management in Tajikistan can improve the health and resilience of rural communities.
Vital for Life: Systems Thinking + Climate Change Adaptation = Improved Water Security.
Event | March 24, 2021
Chemonics and the University of North Carolina Water Institute held a webinar with water experts to discuss how water and sanitation interventions can adapt a systems approach for long-term resilience.
With the need for basic water services on the rise in lower-income countries, how can a systems approach ensure water and sanitation interventions are resilient to the impacts of external factors like COVID-19 and climate change? This event explored mainstreaming adaptation into water programs through a deeper understanding of the dynamic relationships of all stakeholders — those who control water and sanitation resources, those who influence that control, and those who use the resources.
