ROOM

Room 24

DESCRIPTION

[PP-LRA-03]

It is known  that around 1/6 of the world population lacks proper access to water, according to the UN. Top up access to water as a major concern in the political ground is essential to leave no one behind. This session will pose how to fight water scarcity at local level. Solutions to any tailored need of access can be displayed and debated. From complex water course transposition  to simple and low cost desalination tools can be used to share water with those who needs the most: people! Income, geography and gender will draw how access to water can become a reality to all.
