It’s surprising that in the 21st Century, nearly 750 million people lack access to safe drinking water and 2.5 billion people –more than one-third of the world’s population—don’t have an adequate place to go the bathroom. This is so, despite decades of work and dedicating substantial resources to reduce severe poverty, including the lack of safe drinking water and safe sanitation faced by billions of people.

I am the author of an issue brief published by the Natural Resources Defense Council today, Connecting Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene with Fresh Water Conservation and Climate Resilience: The Need to Facilitate Integration in Development Assistance, making the case that development projects intended to help these vulnerable populations need to be better integrated and take into account the potential impacts of climate change. It reveals barriers that exist today that should be overcome. And it suggests steps that the U.S. Agency for International Development, a key player in world efforts to reduce poverty, can take to improve integration in development assistance, which is critical to helping solve major humanitarian challenges. more
