Welcome to join us at Sida for World Water Day 2018:
Leave no one behind
– the water gap
The water crisis affects the poorest most – from slums to remote rural communities, refugee camps and disaster-prone communities, and particularly those marginalised by income, gender, caste, age or disability. As a result, the poorest live and die in conditions unthinkable to us in the developed world, unseen and unheard.
For this year’s World Water Day, WaterAid and Sida invite you to a discussion on how we ensure that no one is left behind when we talk about water for everyone everywhere.
