WASH and climate change

WaterAid and climate change reportThis December, world leaders will meet in Paris under the auspices of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change to negotiate new binding obligations on all countries to act on climate change. A strong agreement to keep warming below two degrees and ensure sufficient climate finance to help poor countries adapt to a changing climate is a fundamental prerequisite to WaterAid’s mission towards universal access to WASH by 2030.

In parallel, WaterAid is increasing its own work on climate change. We focus on the role that sustainable WASH services play in enhancing climate resilience. We also advocate for international climate finance to support countries on their journey towards universal access to WASH. This ‘WaterAid and climate change’ briefing note outlines our approach to climate change, including how it affects our work and what we are doing to build community resilience to climatic impacts.
