WaterAid, climate change and the road to the UN Conference on Climate Change

9 Dec 2015
Climate change is primarily water change – droughts, floods, cyclones and rising sea levels are all a material threat to the sustainability of WASH services.

Today’s climate variability threatens the lives and prosperity of people across many of the countries where WaterAid works, along with other challenges such as rapid urbanisation, high inequality and changing land-use. Climate change will worsen these existing challenges.

Here we outline why current developments in global climate change policy are a material concern for WaterAid’s mission towards universal access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), specifically taking into account the Paris climate talks in December 2015.
