Protocol Webinar Series 2020 - Webinar n° 2. Equity in Access to WASH

22 July 2020

11:00-12:30 CEST

Protocol Webinar Series 2020

The thematic session addressed several areas of work under the Protocol and cover different aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic in relation to water, sanitation, hygiene and health. In times where we cannot meet in person, the sessions provide an opportunity to stay connected, discuss current issues, best practices and solutions.

The webinar was held in English, without interpretation. A special session in Russian featuring main highlights from the previous thematic sessions will be organized.

Webinar 2 - “Equity in Access to WASH”

Addressing inequities in access to WASH between rural and urban areas, wealthy and less wealthy people and for vulnerable and marginalized groups is key to realize the human rights to safe drinking water and sanitation. The webinar will discuss how tools on equitable access to water and sanitation developed under the Protocol on Water and Health can support governments during COVID-19 recovery, helping them to further integrate equity in WASH policies and technical interventions. Country representatives will present their experience in improving equitable access to water and sanitation and reflect on how an equity perspective is key to leave no one behind when responding to pandemics.
The National Institute for Environmental Health of Hungary is co-organizer of this event.
