Field Note #30: World Water Conference


 

I was able to attend the World Water Conference at UNC Chapel Hill. It was amazing to see organizations from all levels come together to talk about the progress and challenges in the water sector. There were large policy makers like UNICEF, WHO, and The World Bank alongside with academic researchers, technical engineers, and government leaders. It was amazing to see where WTW fits into the larger picture of the Sustainable Development Goal (STG) to provide everyone in the world with safe drinking water. 

I learned so much from what other organizations are doing. We are all going through this crisis together and it is only through coming together and sharing our experiences will we ever be able to providing water to all of those in need.
