Achievement of universal access to water and sanitation often requires strong community participation. However, some tasks, such as monitoring water levels, can be too difficult to fulfil. In Timor-Leste, WaterAid is working with local people to find a sustainable solution. Moises Pereira, Water Resource Management Officer at WaterAid Timor-Leste, explains.
COP21 in Paris is a precious chance for governments to reach an agreement that could protect the world’s most vulnerable people from the effects of climate change. Miriam Denis Le Seve, WaterAid’s Policy Officer for Climate Change, discusses the priority water, sanitation and hygiene must be given in any global climate treaty this December.
